Transgender Woman Stabbed

A transgender woman was stabbed in the stomach in central Las Vegas in early May.

The woman, 37, was stabbed in an apparent street robbery during the early morning of May 4. At the time of this writing, the suspect is still at large.

Las Vegas police are investigating the stabbing, which was reported after the woman walked into a 7-Eleven in the central valley (531 E Sahara Ave., near Paradise Road) at 1:30am on Friday, May 4. The police blocked off the store and a neighboring apartment complex.

Metropolitan Police Department Lt. Peter Kisfalvi told the Las Vegas Review-Journal that the woman was hospitalized with non-life-threatening injuries. 

According to the Review-Journal, “Metro is not investigating the stabbing as a hate crime.”
