  • Charlottesville magistrate issues warrant for black victim of parking garage beating

African-American school teacher DeAndre Harris, victim of a beating by neo-Nazis in Charlottesville, Virginia, in August, has been charged with assaulting the white supremacists who beat him with boards, iron rods, and brass knuckles.

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.

According to police, Harris is wanted for unlawful wounding; he is accused of attacking one of the men who participated in his assault.

The victim of the alleged attack attempted to obtain a warrant at the magistrate's office in person.

NIA crackdown on flow of funds blow to terror groups: Rajnath
NIA began a probe into terror activities and flow of funds in June this year and conducted raids at various places. PM Narendra Modi, he added, had succeeded in bringing the global community on board over the issue.

The investigation had just wrapped up, police said, when asked why they had not requested a warrant for the arrest of Harris. The magistrate contacted police, Upman says, who verified facts and issued the warrant for unlawful wounding.

Harris was marching in opposition to the rally on August 12 when a scuffle broke out between a group of white supremacists and several counterprotesters at a downtown parking garage. The warrant was issued from a magistrate.

Video of the incident shows Harris on the ground being violently kicked and beaten with poles by several attackers. The warrant against Harris stems from accusations that he attacked someone, which led to the beating inside the garage. Harris will turn himself in in the next coming days, Merritt said. Harris incurred injuries that required him to have eight staples into his head. "We find it highly offensive and upsetting, but what's more jarring is that he's been charged with the same crime as the men who attacked him", Merritt said. He also said he had cuts across his eyebrow, a chipped tooth and abrasions on his knees and elbows. Ramos even stated, "There were some non-racist members who were going to a free speech rally".
