From Sandy Louey:
Sacramento police are looking for two men who allegedly attacked a 22-year-old transgender woman last week.
The incident, which is being investigated as a hate crime, occurred at 5 p.m. Friday in the tunnel connecting Downtown Plaza and Old Sacramento, said Officer Konrad Von Schoech, a spokesman for the police department.
Two men verbally harassed the victim, who was born a male but is transitioning to a female. They made derogatory remarks about her gender, Von Schoech said.
When she took her cell phone out, she dropped money on the floor, which they picked up. One of them threw a bottle at her leg, Von Schoech said.
The victim, who cut her foot on the broken glass, ran away and called police, he said.
Both men are described as African American men in their late teens or early 20's, 5 feet 7 inches tall and weighing 190 pounds.
One was wearing a red bandana, baggy blue jeans and a black sweatshirt. The second wore a grey sweater and blue jeans, police said.
Anyone with information is asked to call (916) 264-5471.
