Police Seek Suspect Identified In A Viral Hate Crime Caught On Social Media Against 3 Transgender Women In Hollywood

Roommates, police are seeking the help of the public with locating a suspect that was allegedly involved in a hate crime against 3 transgender women in Hollywood. All 3 women sat with ABC Los Angeles to detail their horrific experience. According to the ladies, the suspect allegedly approached the women around 2:15AM on Monday with a metal crowbar and demanded that one of the women remove her shoes and bracelet.

Eden Estrada, Joslyn Allen and Jaslene Busanet were waiting for their Uber when the suspect in question offered to buy them items from a clothing store. Apparently when he refused to pay and the women left, he allegedly became upset and began harassing the women until things took a violent turn. Josyln took to Instagram to share video of the horrific crime captured on video. In the video, you can clearly see the suspect with a crowbar as he yells at Joslyn and kicks her shoes away from her.

Scariest moment of my life. This is where i was while @edenthedoll and @jaslenewhiterose were crying for help. He held a crow bar to my face and threatened to kill me unless I stripped my shoes off and gave him my jewelry and all my processions. He said if i was trans he would kill me. He then forced me to hold his hand while he looks for my friends to kill them for being trans. Meanwhile men and WOMEN screaming that I’m a man and telling him to beat me. Please help us find them. PLEASE
