Teonna Monae Brown was charged with assault in Baltimore, Maryland. Brown particpated in the attack of transwoman Chrissy Lee Polis outside of a McDonalds. An employee of the restaurant filmed the attack according to the United Press International. The employee has since lost his job.
The State of Maryland attorney general's office does not yet have enough evidence to know if hate crimes can be committed. The attackers beat Polis so severely that she suffered a seizure. Employees of the establishment and customers dining in the facility did nothing to help Polis while the attack occurred.
Polis has posted her response on Youtube. LGBT and Transgender activist groups have posted Polis's response. Trans United plans a rally at the Rosedale restaurant to raise awareness of crimes against the transgendered.
