Arrest in brutal beating of Dallas transgender woman in broad daylight in front of crowd

APRIL 15, 2019 / 4:27 AM / CBS/AP

Dallas -- Police have made an arrest in the brutal beating Friday of a transgender woman that's being classified as a hate crime. It occurred in broad daylight in front of a crowd of people and was caught on cellphone video.

Police announced the arrest Sunday night of 29-year-old Edward Thomas and said they're continuing to canvass the neighborhood where it happened for other participants and witnesses.

They said the woman reported the assault while receiving hospital treatment Friday night.

She told officers she was attacked earlier in the day after she was involved in a minor traffic accident near an apartment complex, according to the police statement released Saturday.

CBS Dallas reported a cellphone video captured a crowd of bystanders gawking as the victim, identified by the station as Muhlaysia Booker, was viciously punched by one man and kicked by others.
