Signs of vandalism at the Blue Line Lake Street light-rail station in Minneapolis in June 2022.

Two men are charged in the brutal attack of a transgender woman at a Minneapolis light-rail station that left her hospitalized with critical injuries in what police consider a possible bias-motivated assault.

Kevin York Jr., 23, of St. Paul and Keaton Morris, 19, of Minneapolis were each charged Tuesday in Hennepin County District Court with aggravated robbery and third-degree assault in connection with the attack a day earlier.

According to charges, Metro Transit officers responded to the Lake Street light-rail station around 9:45 a.m. Monday, after a 911 caller advised dispatch that the victim was lying on the floor of the lower-level north tower with "visible brain matter" on the ground. Surveillance cameras at the station captured images of three men beating her and pushing her down the stairs.
