A transgender Oklahoma teen, born male, has been charged with assault after punching two girls in their high school restroom which he was using illegally.
The incident happened Oct. 26 at Edmond Memorial High School. Police responded to the fight at approximately 8:00 a.m. and have since served the transgender student with a juvenile summons.
Based on the police report obtained by Reduxx, the transgender student approached a female student in the girl’s restroom to talk to her and became enraged when she ignored him. The transgender student then punched the girl in the face, pulled her down by her hair, and repeatedly punched and kicked her in the head. Other witnesses corroborated this claim, describing the punch as having “knocked her out clean on the floor.”
The victim reportedly said that due to the excessive force of the blow and the fact that the assailant “is a man,” she was unable to fight back.
When another female student stepped in to intervene, saying she feared for her friend’s life, she was also punched twice in the left side of the face by the transgender student. She suffered injuries to her eyes and face, as well as a possible concussion.
The transgender student has been charged with disorderly conduct and assault and battery. He reportedly no longer attends Edmond Memorial High School, which has released a statement about the incident.
“On October 26, administrators at Edmond Memorial High School investigated an injury fight between three students in a women’s restroom. During the course of the investigation, it was discovered that one of the students involved in the fight is transgender and was using the women’s restroom in violation of state law and district policy #5540, which requires students to use restrooms according to the sex on their birth certificate,” Edmond district representative Susan Parks-Schlepp said in a statement to Reduxx.
According to Parks-Schlepp, the student had only attended the school a few days before the incident. The district was unaware of the student’s biological sex at that time, as a birth certificate was not provided, but the family assured the administration that documentation was “forthcoming.”
In May, Gov. Kevin Stitt signed Senate Bill 615 into law, requiring students to use restrooms that match their biological sex or individual restrooms. He says he hoped the law would prevent such incidents.
“When I signed SB 615 in May, it was with the intent to protect young girls in our schools and prevent instances like this from happening. It is imperative that every school in Oklahoma abide by our state laws, including this one, which have been passed by the Legislature and signed by the governor,” Stitt said in a statement to Fox News Digital.
“This is unacceptable and will not be tolerated in the state of Oklahoma. We will not allow the left’s woke ideology to endanger our girls by allowing boys into the girl’s restroom where assaults like this one can happen,” added Oklahoma Secretary of Education Ryan Walters.
