    - Advertisement -

    Jamie Love, a trans woman who is an artist and nightlife performer, was assaulted late Tuesday night by an unidentified man, resulting in injuries that required medical attention. The victim reported that the incident occurred in the East side of West Hollywood, however, West Hollywood Sheriff Captain Bill Moulder has clarified that the attack occurred in the jurisdiction of Los Angeles near the Pan Pacific Park as the victim was returning home.

    The assailant, dressed entirely in black with a mask and hood obscuring his face, struck the victim with a baseball bat. “I never got to see his face directly as he swung a baseball bat to my face,” Love posted on her Instagram account. “All I remember was him walking past me and then feeling the aluminum ding on my forehead.” Despite the sudden attack, Love managed to escape to safety and contacted the authorities.

    After filing a police report, the victim was taken to the emergency room, where CAT scans were performed to rule out internal bleeding. Fortunately, the scans came back clear, and the victim was released after receiving stitches.

    Love expressed gratitude for surviving the attack and shared a poignant message, particularly resonant during Pride Month. “I am very lucky to be alive and only walk away with some stitches. I wanted to come on here and tell my story. Especially during Pride month to hope that everyone is still being very vigilant and safe. We are still not safe in these streets no matter what time or area you live in. No matter who you are or what you identify as PLEASE be safe. Know exactly what routes you are taking and who’s waiting on the other side.”

    Due to the injuries sustained, the victim announced the cancellation of all upcoming performances, appearances, and hosting engagements to focus on recovery. “I am so sorry to let everyone down, but my full focus at the moment is rest and healing as quickly as possible. I love you all so very much and once again, I’m sorry for this disturbing news. But I will come back to you stronger than ever, I promise.”

    This attack serves as a stark reminder of the ongoing safety concerns, highlighting the need for vigilance and awareness of one’s surroundings.
