THREE suspects are being sought by police after a woman was punched and kicked during an altercation between transgender activists and radical feminists last month.
The 60-year-old victim was punched in the face, knocked to the ground and kicked after one of the suspects tried to grab her camera at a gender recognition talk, the Met Police said.
Officers are trying to trace a man and two others, who are believed to be transgender, over the attack at around 9.30pm on Wednesday September 13 at Speakers’ Corner in Hyde Park.
Police said the first suspect is a man described as white, around 6ft and with brown hair in a pony tail.
They give no gender for the two others, with one said to be white, around 5ft 8ins, of slim build and with short blond hair, wearing a black, grey and white hooded camouflage jacket and multicoloured leggings.
The third suspect is described as white, around 5ft 7ins, of slim build and with brown chin-length hair with blonde tips, wearing a black, grey and white camouflage hat, a black pullover top and black jeans.
A 26-year-old man who came forward on October 6 was questioned under caution but not arrested, the Met said.
