SAN ANTONIO -- A man was in for quite a surprise after learning the woman in his car was a transgender person.

Police say the suspect apparently snapped and beat the woman in the face repeatedly before dumping her off at an apartment complex in the 3200 block of Hillcrest.

Police are not sue where the victim was picked up, but they believethe victim had an arrangement with the male suspect.

Preliminarily, investigators think the man responsible for the beating thought he was about to have a good time with a biological woman. But, then hefoundthings were not what they seemed. That discovery may have lead to the brutal beating.

The 24-year old knocked on a complete stranger's door, begging for help.

Police aren't calling it a hate crime, but say the man will face aggravated assault charges.
