Security guard arrested for stopping trans woman from using restroom
He was arrested for harassing a trans woman who wanted to use a restroom in a grocery store.
The unidentified guard was charged with simple assault after allegedly pushing the woman out of the bathroom inside the store, which is part of the Giant grocery chain.
The company released a statement saying it could not comment on the incident as it “involves a third party that provides security services for Giant.”
While WRC reported that the guard in question is a man, WJLA-TV described them as a woman, saying that the guard is also being investigated for allegedly uttering a homophobic slur during the incident.
