MANILA - A Filipino transgender has pleaded guilty to attacking and causing serious injuries to his former boyfriend, an Australian national, last year in Singapore.

Channel News Asia reported that William Hanz De Veyra Arriesgado pleaded guilty for the attack against Australian Colin James Peady on February 26, 2012.

The Filipino allegedly used three kinds of weapons -- a knife, a pair of scissors and a fork – to inflict injuries on Peady at his apartment.

Arriesgado, who could face fines, caning, and jail time of up to 10 years, is set to return to court on October 17.
