BOISE -- Police continue to investigate a stabbing that occurred early Saturday morning in Ada County.
Officers with the Ada County Sheriff's Dept. say the suspect is 27-year-old Elizabeth McClerkin -- who they say is legally identified as a woman.
McClerkin is facing aggravated battery charges after officers were told McClerkin stabbed a man multiple times with a knife.
The victim was taken to a hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. Police say McClerkin fled the scene, and was located a short distance away.
Officers say both McClerkin and the alleged victim knew each other well.
On Monday, family members, supporters, and community activists came to the KTVB studio to protest the police report -- not because of the alleged crime committed -- but because police chose to identify the person they call, "Jayce," as a woman.
Protester April Foster told KTVB she believes both the police and members of the media need to provide more consideration to the needs of transgender people.
"I think it's very disrespectful, and also puts him at potential risk of violence," Foster told KTVB. "Not all trans people are 'out' to everyone they know."
Protester James Gravatt said he also believes activists have a responsibility to help spread that message. "It's sort of our role as activists ourselves to bring the message where the message has been lacking," Gravatt said.
Whether McClerkin's crime is connected to a gender issue, or not, has yet to be released by police.
McClerkin appeared in Ada County court on Monday where a judge set McClerkin's bond for $150,000, and issued a no-contact order for the alleged victim in the case.
McClerkin is next scheduled to appear in front of Magistrate Judge Daniel L. Steckel on August 6th at 8:30 a.m.
