Rally planned after beating outside Md. McDonald’s

ROSEDALE, Md. — Advocates for transgender rights are planning a rally outside a McDonald’s in Baltimore County where an attack caught on video took place.

The rally condemning the attack is set for 7 p.m. Monday outside the restaurant in Rosedale.

The video posted online shows a woman being attacked and apparently having a seizure. Baltimore County police say a 14-year-old girl has been charged as a juvenile and an 18-year-old woman, Teonna Monae Brown, faces an assault charge in the case.

The victim, a 22-year-old transgender woman, says she is the victim of a hate crime. Polis says before she was attacked, one teen said Polis was a man using the women’s restroom and accused Polis of talking to her man.
