Arrest Made in Casa Ruby Vandalism/Assult, Casa Ruby Seeks Donations for Repairs

Vandalism of door at Casa Ruby

On Sunday at around 2 pm Casa Ruby — located at 2822 Georgia Avenue — was vandalized and the perpetrator engaged in a verbal altercation with a staff member working at the center. Casa Ruby is a drop-in center and advocacy organization for transgender women which was founded in 2004 by Ruby Corado. As the subject left the building, he threw a brick at the door causing damage.

On Monday, March 13, pursuant to a DC Superior Court arrest warrant, Andrew Cook of Southeast, DC, was arrested and charged with Felony Destruction of Property. He was additionally charged with Simple Assault and Threatening to Kidnap or Injure a Person.

I can’t thank MPD enough for their support of Casa Ruby and swift response, but Casa Ruby also needs help in repairing the damage. A gofundme campaign has been set up “to help raise enough money to help Casa Ruby get better security doors as to keep everyone inside safe and make them feel safe.  The transgender community and especially our youth really need our help right now.”

Please consider supporting Casa Ruby to help them repair damage and upgrade their safety.

    I am glad caught, Andrew Cooke. Do we known if he had any prior’s? Could we make a notion of a restraining order against him?
