Transgender woman stabbed
repeatedly in D.C. attack
“I just want to make sure that it gets
out there, that this attack happened and how brutal it was,” Budd said. “And
also the message needs to be sent that transgender folks need to be very, very
cautious in terms of their surroundings, who they are talking to and especially
in the nighttime hours.”
D.C. police have declined to confirm whether they have arrested a
male suspect for allegedly stabbing a 29-year-old transgender woman as many as
40 times in an abandoned house in Southeast Washington around 1 a.m. on Friday
A police report, which lists the incident as an assault with
intent to kill, says the stabbing took place at 3038 Stanton Road, S.E. It says
the victim, Bree Wallace, managed to run several blocks to the apartment
building where she lives on the 2400 block of 15th Place, S.E., before
collapsing on the street.
The report says Wallace was taken to Prince George’s Hospital
Center in nearby Cheverly, Md., where she was being treated for multiple stab
wounds to the back and chest and severe lacerations to both of her hands.
“I don’t know why he did it,” Wallace told the Washington Blade in
a phone interview on Sunday from her hospital bed. “He didn’t say anything,”
she said in recounting how the incident took place after she recently met the
attacker in the neighborhood near where she lives.
“The investigation has revealed that this assault with intent to
kill was neither random nor a hate crime,” police spokesperson Gwendolyn Crump
told the Blade in an e-mail.
But Crump and other police officials have declined to confirm
Wallace’s assertion that police told her father that they arrested a suspect in
the case late Friday or early Saturday.
“They told my dad,” said Wallace, in recounting to the Blade that
a police investigator informed her father that an arrest had been made.
Trans activists Earline Budd and Ruby Corado, who know Wallace,
said she told them she and the attacker had known each other casually prior to
the attack. Corado said Wallace told her the attacker sent her a text message
asking to meet up with her at the location where the stabbing occurred.
Corado told the Blade that Wallace informed her that at some point
she declined the man’s request that the two become romantically or sexually
involved. Corado said Wallace was a client at Casa Ruby, an LGBT community
center with outreach to the Latino and trans communities for which Corado
serves as director.
Wallace was also among 12 contestants chosen as a trans “calendar
girl” in a fundraising contest sponsored by Casa Ruby as part of a Casa Ruby
program to help train clients as makeup artists, Corado said.
“Complainant 1 [the victim] stated that she had met with Suspect 1
at the event location to buy a cigarette,” the police report says. “According
to Complainant 1, Suspect 1 then suddenly started to stab Complainant 1 for
unknown reasons,” the report says.
Budd and Corado said Wallace also informed them that police told
her father that the suspect had been arrested and was expected to appear for a
presentment or arraignment at D.C. Superior Court on Saturday during the
court’s weekend proceedings.
“She knows who this guy is and she told police who he is,” Budd
told the Blade. “I’m puzzled over why the police won’t confirm whether they
made this arrest or not.”
Crump didn’t respond to a Blade inquiry about whether an arrest
had been made.
Sgt. Matt Mahl, supervisor of the police Gay and Lesbian Liaison
Unit, said the unit had been briefed on the incident but said he wasn’t
authorized to comment further. He said the incident was still under
Budd expressed concern that police officials had not issued a
public announcement about the incident over the weekend to alert the media and
the community that a trans person had been attacked in what Budd called another
in a string of violent anti-trans attacks that have occurred in the city over
the past several years.
“I just want to make sure that it gets out there, that this attack
happened and how brutal it was,” Budd said. “And also the message needs to be
sent that transgender folks need to be very, very cautious in terms of their
surroundings, who they are talking to and especially in the nighttime hours.”
Budd and Corado said Wallace told them doctors informed her that
she had been stabbed about 40 times.
D.C. property records show that the unoccupied house where the
stabbing took place was sold for $100,000 in January to a company called the
Kamyab Group based in Fredericksburg, Va.
Wallace said she and the attacker entered the house through a door
that was detached from its hinges.
LAS PANDILLAS AZOTAN LA SOCIEDAD PERUANALos factores sociales Los jóvenes invisibles & los pandilleros visibles DECENAS DE PANDILLAS AZOTAN LIMA Por: Jorge Yeshayahu Gonzales-Lara, Sociólogo
Las pandillas han dejado de ser un problema exclusivo del centro de la ciudad. El incremento de las pandillas puede ser atribuido al ambiente que rodea a los niños, niñas, jóvenes y adolecentes física, mental, social y familiarmente. Un reciente reporte estima 532 pandillas en el Perú, y aproximadamente 9.129 pandilleros entre las edades de 9 a 36 años. Las pandillas suelen ser grupos de personas que tienen ideas o pensamientos en común que se reúnen para convivir y compartir experiencias similares, y hablar de algún tema agradable, como hasta cometer casos violentos. El jefe, de la pandilla representa la estructura de poder-autoridad, y los integrantes de la pandilla, constituyente la parte esencial de la familia. La violencia que incurren los pandilleros resulta en la golpiza, la cárcel o la mu…
