An arrest has finally been made in the brutal attack of Deandre Harris that occurred during the Unite The Right racist rally in Charlottesville, Va. Police arrested Mason, Ohio resident Daniel Borden, 18, Friday evening and charged him with malicious wounding, according to WCPO.
As reported by The Root, Harris was attacked by a group of white supremacists, in a parking garage that was less than a hundred feet away from a police precinct.“They were beating me with poles. I have eight staples in my head, a broken wrist and a chipped tooth,” Harris told The Root.
Although other men were featured in the photo taken by photographer Zach Roberts, so far Borden is the only one that was arrested, and is currently being held at the Hamilton County Justice Center in Ohio.
Other people of interest have been identified from the photo and video that were taken before and after the attack, but it looks like everyone’s favorite “I’m not racist because I’m ‘Spanish’” racist, is also a suspect.It needs to be stressed that this wouldn’t have happened without crowd-sourcing his identity. The Cville police have made no effort to investigate these people. Every single arrest has come only because private citizens have identified these people and assembled evidence themselves. #charlottesville #deandreharris
