A video recording of a brutal attack on a transgender woman has surfaced on the Internet. The video shows a verbal confrontation between the woman and a group of men. Later on, the woman is body-slammed to the ground and has her head stomped on. 

A group known as the Transgender Individuals Living Their Truth Incorporated, or TILTT Inc., said there has been an increase in attacks on transgender persons lately.

“I’m sickened by the fact that in a matter of weeks here, another member of my community (has been) attacked,” Cheryl Courtney Evans said.

Atlanta police said they are aware of the video, but said so far the person attacked has not filed a report.
