Photos of suspected transgender prostitute abuser released
The police have released photos of a man who severely assaulted a transgender prostitute in Amsterdam in the hopes that the public can help identify him. The incident took place around 9:30 pm in the prostitute's room on Barndesteeg near Nieuwmarkt.
The man entered the room and the prostitute immediately told him that she is transgender. He said he had no problem with this and paid her for oral sex. The man quickly demanded more and the prostitute told him that that would cost more.
The man became aggressive and hit her hard in the face. He continued hitting her and calling her names, despite her pleas for him to stop. The man only stopped after being startled by a door to another room opening.
The victim managed to push the man off her and fled to another room. The prostitute in the other room locked the door and called the police. The perpetrator had fled when the police arrived.
The perpetrator is believed to be a Dutch man between the ages of 25 and 30 years. He has dark blond hair and a scar on the right side of his face.
The police ask that anyone with any information about this man please contact them at once.
