A trans woman who was attacked on the New York subway in January has released a picture of the person behind the incident.

Jennifer Louise Lopez and the police have appealed for witnesses following the attack on 30 January.


The attacker demanded to know Lopez’s gender, and used anti-trans slurs before physically attacking her.

Despite an intervention by fellow passengers who pulled the assailant away from Lopez, she still required emergency eye surgery.

Having shared the photo online, and other passengers having recorded a video, police and Lopez want anyone with information to come forward.

Those who believe they can help identify the woman should call Crime Stoppers on 800-577-TIPS.
