Black man beaten in Charlottesville far-right rally charged

85

A black man who was beaten at a far-right rally in Virginia has turned himself in to be formally charged in connection with the incident, BBC reports.

DeAndre Harris, who is accused of unlawful wounding at the 12 August Charlottesville protest, was released on an unsecured bond.

Photos and video of Mr Harris, 20, being attacked by white men at the event were widely shared online.

Two alleged assailants were charged with malicious wounding in September.

But many are incredulous that an African-American set upon by white attackers at a far-right demonstration could himself face a criminal case.
