A D.C. man has been sentenced to 14 months in prison on charges stemming from a 2010 assault of two transgendered women.

Dimas Melgar, 45, also known as Carlos Chinchilla, approached the women at the corner of 14th and Shepherd streets Northwest around noon March 13, and shouted that he hates all gay people. He then picked up a metal pole and swung at one of the victims, striking her face, prosecutors said. The victim suffered a cut to the lower lip and a laceration to the chin.
