A gang of drunken transgender women who stamped on a teenager outside a Tube station have walked free from court.
Tamsin Lush, 29, Tylah Jo Bryan and Amarnih Lewis-Daniel, both 24, set upon the 19-year-old after he told them they needed female genitalia to be women.
Lush ‘drop-kicked’ the victim, named only as Al Shaheeb, and Hannah Bryan, 24, a mother-of-four and a friend of the transgender women, joined in as they booted the teenager.
Jacinta Stringer, prosecuting, said the victim did not give a statement to police or cooperate after the attack.
She said he had also racially abused Hannah Bryan, calling her a ‘black c***’ during the incident at 2.15am on June 24, 2018.
Ms Stringer said: ‘He was 19 and described as Arabian. The young man came across these defendants outside Leicester Square Tube station.
‘Hannah Bryan, when she was interviewed described that there had been a conversation with this young man where he had turned around and said ”you’re not a woman – you need a f**** to be a woman”.
‘That of course started an altercation. Tamsin Lush drop-kicked the male that had made that comment and he went to the ground.
‘The young man was on the floor and these defendants stamped and kicked him whilst he was on the floor.
‘Hannah Bryan came at a later stage and tried to pull them off, but was also seen trying to kick the male.’
The 19-year-old was taken to hospital after he was left with severe abrasions and a black eye, Inner London Crown Court heard.
Judge Nigel Seed told the gang: ‘I accept that had it not been for the alleged victim in this case there probably wouldn’t have been an incident.
‘The four of you then were subjected to extremely offensive transphobic and racial abuse. Had it not been for that there would have been no violent disorder.
‘However that does not excuse what you did, you went far to far in your reactions, but of course transphobic issues are particularly sensitive.
‘It is a sign that the so-called victim realised how wrong he was by refusing to cooperate and not make any statement.
‘I do not in any way your condone behaviour but I accept that what happened to you at the beginning of the incident was entirely wrong and people like you should not be subject to that abuse in the public domain or anywhere.’
Lush from Romford, east London, Daniel-Lewis, of Dagenham, east London, and Tylah-Jo Bryan, of Barking, all admitted violent disorder.
Lush, Daniel-Lewis and Tylah-Jo Bryan were all sentenced to a six-month curfew between 9pm and 7am.
Daniel-Lewis was also ordered to complete 20 days rehabilitation activity requirement including anger management.
Tylah-Jo Bryan was also handed a 12-month community order.
Hannah Bryan, of Barking, admitted the lesser offence of causing fear or provocation of violence and was given a conditional discharge for two years.
