Black man attacked at white nationalist rally faces felony charge

Harris, 20, had been protesting the white nationalist rally when he exchanged words with six neo-Nazis who then attacked him - repeatedly beating him with large yellow poles in a parking garage near the Charlottesville Police Station and leaving him unconscious.

Deandre Harris, a 20-year-old black man who was viciously attacked by white supremacists at the Charlottesville, Va. white supremacist rally nearly two months ago is now a wanted man after a local magistrate issued a warrant for his arrest in connection to the same August 12 incident that left him bloody and wounded.

On Monday an arrest warrant was issued for 20-year-old DeAndre Harris on an unlawful wounding charge, according to the Washington Post.

To date, two suspects have been reportedly arrested in connection to the Harris attack, Daniel Borden and Alex Michael Ramos.

Lt. Stephen Upman says the alleged victim told the magistrate's office, a judicial office, what happened.

S. Lee Merritt, a civil attorney for Harris, called the charge "clearly retaliatory".

The investigation had just wrapped up, police said, when asked why they had not requested a warrant for the arrest of Harris.

According to Intercept writer Shaun King, Harris' accuser was an alleged white supremacist who'd been arrested in the scuffle. The magistrate issued the warrant Monday after consulting with police.

Video of the incident shows Harris on the ground being violently kicked and beaten with poles by several attackers. Both were charged with malicious wounding, a felony.

So far, federal authorities have taken no action to identify the man holding what appears to be a 9mm Glock semi-automatic handgun threatening Harris, despite high-resolution photos supplied by Roberts to the FBI. He also suffered a broken wrist and a chipped tooth. Harris incurred injuries that required him to have eight staples into his head.

Merritt maintained his client did not instigate the fight and would turn himself in to police in the coming days.
