A man is being charged with a hate crime after allegedly stabbing a transgender girl in Washington DC.
The 15-year-old girl, who has not been identified, was on a Metro train when the suspect began mocking her appearance.
Reginald Anthony Klaiber, 24, allegedly realized the girl was transgender and began to get aggressive.
‘He came to my friend and said you have red hair,’ Jae-la White, a friend of the victim, said.
‘My friend said ok, and then he said, “Oh, you’re a man!”’
