Washington: Suspects arrested in assault on transgender woman

SPOKANE, Washington -- Police have arrested two men suspected in the Friday beating of a transgender woman inside the Boots Bakery at 20 W. Main Ave.

Adam R. Flippen, 45, is facing charges of second-degree assault and malicious harassment. Marc A. Fessler, 42, is facing one charge of malicious harassment. Both men have been booked into the Spokane County Jail and are expected to appear in court Wednesday.

The beating spurred a call to action as 150 people descended on the Spokane City Council meeting Monday night to speak against such violence and complain that police officers were not respectful of beating victim Jacina Carla Scamahorn.
