A Trans Teen Was Violently Attacked At a London Birthday Party Last Weekend

The following contains descriptions of anti-trans violence.

An 18-year-old trans girl was stabbed 14 times at a birthday celebration in London last weekend.

The victim, who remains unidentified, was attending a party at the Harrow Leisure Center Roller Rink on February 10, according to The London Standard. A group of people there reportedly called her transphobic slurs, per Metro UK, before her attacker stabbed her repeatedly with a knife. The victim was subsequently rushed to the hospital and has since been discharged, according to a statement from the Metropolitan Police.

Four people have been arrested in connection with the attack. On Tuesday, 19-year-old Summer Betts-Ramsey appeared at the Willesden magistrates court, and was charged with attempted murder and possession of an offensive weapon in public, per the Standard. Betts-Ramsey has denied being involved in the stabbing and will remain in custody until a plea hearing on March 12.

In the statement from Metropolitan Police, Detective Inspector Nicola Hannant said that the incident was “a shocking and violent attack and we continue to support the victim and her family as she recovers from her injuries.”

“Since the incident occurred, we have been working tirelessly to identify those responsible and are making good progress with our investigation,” she said.

The attack comes just over a year after two 15-year-olds stabbed Brianna Ghey, a 16-year-old trans girl, to death in a park near her home in Birchwood, Warrington, U.K. Earlier this month, Ghey’s killers Scarlett Jenkinson and Eddie Ratcliffe both received lifetime prison sentences, with the possibility of parole in two decades.
