SPOKANE, Wash. -

Court documents released on Wednesday are painting a clearer picture of what happened leading up to the beating of a transgender woman in downtown Spokane last week. 

Documents say Jacina Carla Scamahorn was outside Boots Bakery when two men made derogatory comments about her clothes. During this altercation, court documents state Jacina spit in the face of one of the men. A few minutes later, one of the men came into the bakery screaming expletives and according to witnesses said he "was going to make her (Jacina) a bloody mess." The suspect then went outside the bakery, then came back in and hit Jacina with a closed fist in the right eye. Jacina tried to push him away and she was then kicked in the face. 

During the attack, court documents say Jacina started swallowing blood and convulsing. She also claims she had consciousness problems during the assault. She was taken to the hospital and released 12 hours later. A facial surgeon confirmed she had fractures in her face and a broken nose.

The two men believed to be responsible for the beating made their first court appearance Wednesday afternoon. 

A few hours after releasing photos of the suspects, Spokane Police announced Tuesday night they arrested 45-year-old Adam R. Flippen and 43-year-old Marc A Fessler in connection to the assault. 

Flippen was booked for 2nd Degree Assault and Malicious Harassment, while Fessler was booked for Malicious Harassment. 

The judge released Fessler on his own recognizance. He is due back in court on February 18, 2015. 

Flippen was also released on his own recognizance.
