In Copenhagen, Denmark, a trans woman was attacked with a hammer in broad daylight.

A trans woman was attacked with a hammer in broad daylight in Denmark last night (5 June).

In the unprovoked attack, the victim had been walking past City Hall at around 6pm when she was brutally attacked on the head.

The woman, yet to be named, suffered serious head truma. She is in a stable condition in hospital.

Mads Helios, from Copenhagen Police, told local news sites the authorities had been working intensively on the matter.

‘We have been out to get some video surveillance and we have some really good ictues of the perpetrator,’ he said.

‘Later, we’ll look at whether they should be published. I would encourage him he himself comes and admits what he has done.

‘It is very, very rough.’

Helios added there were many people who witnessed the crime, so is hoping for the case to be closed swiftly.

The police have yet to call the incident a hate crime.

Denmark is one of the most progressive nations for LGBT rights in the world, reflected in the country becoming the 11th to pass same-sex marriage last year.
