Members of BLM attacked 3 Proud Boys on November 3 Wednesday, in Washington DC.
Two of the victims include the leading members of Proud Boy. One is identified as Enrique Tarrio, the chairman, and the other one as Bevelyn Beatty. The incident occurs near the White House, where the Former President Trump declared his victory calling the elections as ‘fraud’ while the opponent Joe Biden showed his confidence to get more votes.
The incident occurs at 2:26 am on the 1400 block of NY Avenue. Some big clashes were observed during the election night. The attack by the BLM mob is one of them. However, the protestors of the BLM group declared that there is no authenticity in this allegation.
The President of Proud Boys was slashed in the stomach, and various other members got injured too, including a woman stabbed in the back. The victims are in stable condition, according to the reports.
Enrique Tarrio said that they were attacked while returning from a DC bar after watching the election. A group of people blocked their path and started stabbing them with knives. The suspects fled away without being seen.
“Beatty seemed to be their main target. Had the three Proud Boys not been there with her, she might have died,” said Loh. Beatty is an anti-abortion activist and was charged for throwing paint on a BLM mural in NYC. She repeated and recorded the same act as soon as she was released.
A tweet on the official Twitter account of BLM says they’ve nothing to do with these attacks, and all those who’re associating the false allegations with the BLM group must be ashamed. Later in a press release, the officials said the suspect’s affiliation with BLM is not yet confirmed.
The whole scuffle was recorded in a live stream video. The victims were screaming that they’d been stabbed and were bleeding.
The suspects include two men and a woman. The men were covered with black clothes while the woman was in a grey coat and orange leggings and was carrying a knife.
The attacker’s motive is not clear yet, but it looks like a hate crime for political reasons.
