A transgender woman was handcuffed after a cleaner stopped her from using the ladies’ toilet because ‘she has a pen!s’.
Gretchen Custodio Diez, 28, was about to enter the restroom in a shopping mall in Manila, the Philippines, when she was told off by Chair Ganal on Tuesday.
Gretchen, who was wearing a jacket and a black dress, filmed the bizarre moment as she argued with the cleaning lady.
She was also seen trying to take away Gretchen’s phone, appearing to hit her in the head and claiming to file a lawsuit against Gretchen.
Manila Police arrived hours later at around 11:30pm and took Gretchen away in handcuffs.
Gretchen was taken to the QCPD Station 7 in Cubao, then to the anti-cyber crime division because the police were confused about how to handle her case, it is reported.
