A transgender person was arrested after she was accused of theft.

However, police were unsure where to place her as she was dressed as a woman and had some female body parts and some male body parts.

When police arrested the transgender pole dancer of Changsha, China, they faced a dilemma as to where to detain the prisoner.

In the end, they settled the dilemma by putting her in a cell by herself and appointed a female psychologist and female medical personnel. They provided her similar treatment to other female inmates.

The suspect, who was identified as Guiying, is in her 30s. She fell in love with pole dancing when she was still a man.

While pursuing her passion she decided to transition into a woman. A few years ago, she began the sex change surgery.

However, the operation led to a lot of complications and post surgical problems requiring expensive medical procedures. Having spent all her money, Guiying turned to stealing to pay for the treatment, which led to her arrest.
