  • Muhlaysia Booker was violently attacked

The video documenting the attack shows Booker, sporting a pink wig and a blue top, being beaten and called names.

Police arrested 29-year-old Edward Thomas late Sunday for his alleged role in the attack.

Asked about the bet on Monday afternoon, a police spokesperson said detectives are reviewing all audio and video to determine if that was said, and who said it.

The victim, who was identified by relatives to WFAA as Muhlaysia Booker, told police that the people who assaulted her yelled homophobic slurs during the attack outside of the Royal Crest Apartments.

- Dallas police are searching for suspects in a possible hate crime against a transgender woman.

Dallas Mayor Mike Rawlings said he is "extremely angry about what appears to be mob violence against this woman" and that those responsible don't represent how most residents feel about the city's "thriving LGBTQ community".

Dog Rescued 137 Miles From Shore in Gulf of Thailand
The dog was said to have been in good spirits when he arrived on land to be taken to the vet. At first, the aspin was drained and listless, exhausted from being in the water for so long.

A man described as the victim's father told NBCDFW that she has been attacked before but this is the most violent.

She was released from the hospital and is recovering from her injuries at home.

Dallas police are looking into whether the assault will be classified as a hate crime.

"I hope they get what's coming to them, and I know they will", Debra Booker added. "I am in contact with the chief and she assured me that the Dallas Police Department is fully investigating, including the possibility that this was a hate crime". However, BuzzFeed News reports that it was "minor" and was most likely used exclusively as an excuse to attack the woman, identified as 23-year-old Muhlaysia Booker. After about a minute, a group of women help the woman up and carry her away. "We will not stand for this kind of behavior", a portion of his remarks read.

"It's utterly terrifying", McMurray, who is also transgender, told WFAA. 'There's no reason that our lives are less valuable than someone else or that we should be someone's punching bag just because we're transgender'.

Of the 7,175 hate crime incidents reported by the Federal Bureau of Investigation in 2017, 119 were related to gender identity bias. The data showed a 5 pr cent increase in hate crimes motivated by sexual orientation bias and a 4 per cent decrease in hate crimes motivated by gender identity bias. Of crimes motivated by gender identity bias, 106 targeted transgender people, a 1% increase from 2016.
