ROSEDALE, Md. (AP) -- An 18-year-old woman has been charged in an attack on a transgender woman over using a McDonald's restroom in a Baltimore suburb.

Police announced Monday that Teonna Monae Brown was arrested
Friday and charged with first- and second-degree assault.

A video of the April 18 fight posted online shows an assault by two young women on 22-year-old Chrissy Lee Polis.

Polis told The Baltimore Sun that before she was attacked she heard a teen say she was a man using the women's restroom.

According to charging documents, a 14-year-old girl charged as a juvenile in the case told police that she and Brown fought with Polis over using the restroom.

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

    These two violent maggots deserve lockup time. The store employees deserve firing, and the victim... if he/she/it has not had the surgery yet, then he/she/it is NOT transgendered but just a common transvestite. Until that surgery occurs they should still be classified by the equipment they pack. If that is the case, thn why was a "male" using female facilities? Under these "guidelines" all a pervert needs to do to invade womens facility is to claim "transgendered"
