Man beaten at protest says police were indifferent to attack
McLEAN, Va. – A Virginia man says police failed to come to his aid as he was beaten by white supremacists during Saturday's violent protests that led to three deaths.
Photos and video of the beating inflicted on 21-year-old DeAndre Harris in Charlottesville have gone viral. Police said Tuesday they are investigating the incident, portions of which were captured on video, and that they have identified one person of interest.
Harris was beaten in a parking garage right next to the city police station.
A member of a Southern Nationalist group says Harris and his friends instigated the attack.
