A British man has been jailed for six months for assulting a transsexual woman in Hull.
Ben Matthew Firth first harassed and then punched transsexual Samantha Marks in the face.
The incident took place in a library in Hull. Frith initially targeted Ms Marks by shouting “hiya boy” and making other abusive remarks, according to the Jewish Chronicle.
Ms Marks claims that when she left the library, Mr Frith chased her. She said: “I tried to dodge him but he blocked me and hit me twice, once in the forehead and once on the shoulder. My glasses fell off and I was knocked over.”
The police later arrested Mr Frith and he convicted of harassment and assault at Hull Magistrates’ Court in October.
