Police are investigating a brutal attack on a transgender teen that nearly killed him, reports KGET.
The teen, Kristian Rouse, 18, was found laying on the floor of his apartment, barely alive, by his mother, Eurydice Darrington. “He could barely speak, barely breathe. He had marks around his neck, his face was swollen, he had bruises on his torso and his back and his shirt was off.”
Kristian was hospitalized and on a ventilator for four weeks. He’s now in a long term acute care hospital in Covina, where he’s working on regaining full movement of his leg and arm. And he still can’t talk due to scar tissue in his throat.
Anyone with information on the attack is asked to call police at (661) 327-711.
The family has set up a gofundme account to help with medical expenses.
