A biological boy who identifies as transgender has been charged with assault after being accused of violently attacking two female students in a school bathroom.
The incident took place at Edmond Memorial High School in Edmond, Oklahoma.
Reduxx obtained a copy of the police report dated October 26.
The Reduxx report states, “a trans-identified male student was handed a juvenile summons after two female students were left with injuries following a fight he had reportedly initiated with them in the women’s washroom.”
According to Reduxx, the transgender student was identified as “A” in the police report. As a result of the alleged attack, “A” was charged with assault and battery, and disorderly conduct.
Authorities observed that one of the female students had sustained injuries to her head and face. Police stated that she had swelling around both of her eyes and “several red areas” on her face.
More from Reduxx:
The attending officer noted the female victim had “several red areas” on her face, and that both of her eyes were beginning to swell. The officer conducted an interview with the victim, whose full name was redacted due to her age.
The female student advised the officer that a trans-identified student, indicated by the letter A, had approached her in the women’s washroom while she was speaking to friends. She explained that A had tried to talk to her and she had ignored him, at which point A began to get angry and asked if she “wanted to fight” while approaching her with balled fists.
The victim said that the trans-identified student then hit her in the face, and she indicated in her statement that she was not strong enough to fight back due to the force of the blow.
The transgender student pulled the girl’s hair and forced her to the ground, at which point he began to kick her in the face and punch her repeatedly.
The victim’s friends, who had been in the washroom at the time, witnessed the incident and were pleading with A to stop his assault. One of the other female students attempted to intervene, and was punched twice on the left side of her face by the assailant.
One witness indicated that the girl had tried to step in because A “is a man,” and she felt her friend’s life was at risk.
The female student who intervened is listed as having injuries to her “eye, face, and head with a possible concussion.”
Two other witnesses corroborated the victims’ recounting of the incident.
Susan Parks-Schlepp, Director of Communications for Edmond Public Schools, provided additional details to the outlet.
“Administrators at Edmond Memorial High School investigated an injury fight involving two students in a women’s restroom. During the course of the investigation, it was discovered that one of the students involved in the fight is transgender and was using the women’s restroom in violation of state law which requires students to use restrooms according to the sex on their birth certificate,” Parks-Schlepp stated.
Parks-Schlepp added that “those involved in the fight have received consequences in accordance with both district policy and state law.”
