Associated Press

ROSEDALE, Md. -- An 18-year-old woman has been charged in an attack on a transgender woman over using a McDonald's restroom in a Baltimore suburb.

Police announced Monday that Teonna Monae Brown was arrested Friday and charged with first- and second-degree assault.

A video of the April 18 fight posted online shows an assault by two young women on 22-year-old Chrissy Lee Polis.

Polis told The Baltimore Sun that before she was attacked she heard a teen say she was a man using the women's restroom. According to charging documents, a 14-year-old girl charged as a juvenile in the case told police that she and Brown fought with Polis over using the restroom.

A rally condemning the attack is set for 7 p.m. Monday outside the restaurant in Rosedale, Md.
