Transgender woman Charlotte Osieczanek was severely beaten Sunday at a 7-Eleven where she works overnight in Corvallis, Oregon.
In a statement on Twitter, university officials said, “OSU takes seriously reports of violence against a Corvallis community member and condemns violence of any kind. We will assist CPD investigation and confirm any student engagement.”
Corvallis Police Department told KEZI 11 News on the 29th that it is not sharing any additional details at this time as it is an open investigation.

No arrests have been made according to the Corvallis Police Blotter even though the alleged assailants are believed to be students from Oregon State University.
" Happy Halloween to you all! Wanted to give a little update on what I can! Firstly there are no words in the English language that can convey my gratitude that Corvallis and all of you have shown me. This is humbling beyond belief and so very thankful that there are people that care about me and the LGBTQ+ community! As such I also encourage you to donate also to the Queer center here in Corvallis or your own favorite LGBTQ+ organization! I'm very lucky to have the support I do but there are plenty of others that are suffering that need help as well! :)
A quick update on how I'm doing as well; doing a lot better, been resting a lot, sleeping 14hrs at time and laying low as to make sure the investigation is handled properly!
Complete diagnosis is Fractured nose, both orbital floors fractured, fractured sinus wall on the inside of my skull, fractured shoulder, bruised ribs, and bruises a few places as well as severely bruised knees with abrasions all over! And the cherry to top it all of is that I did test COVID positive while in the ER, but I am asymptomatic, vaccinated, and everyone that I was in close proximity has tested negative! But using it as extra time to be safe, rest and recoup before life gets busy!
Thank you all again for your support and will update more when I can! I love you all more than you know and together when we make this world a better place for every human of every walk of life!"
