Philadelphia police have released a video that highlights six suspects wanted for the beating of a transgender woman inside her home.



In an interview with Action News last week, 34-year-old Kendall Stephens said she was inside her home with her husband, 12-year-old goddaughter and another child when a loud ruckus erupted outside.

"It was a brawl, people were fighting, people were throwing around liquor bottles all in front of my property while I had kids inside," said Stephens.

She says she threatened to call 911 if they didn't quiet down and disperse. Stephens says suddenly some of the people in the group began to attack her, part of which was captured on surveillance camera before it was ripped from the wall.
