Black Lives Matter members were initially listed as the suspect group. But after they complained, DC police changed the narrative. It appears from the video that the attackers could have been Antifa because of the black bloc clothing style, but since they were Black, police first described them as BLM.
Jen Loh, former president of Latinos for Trump, is a videographer who was present and heard Beatty state that she had been stabbed.
The New York Post reported:
Loh told Storyful that the attackers appeared to target Beatty. “If it wasn’t for the three or four Proud Boys that were there, she would have been stabbed and really brutally beaten had they not saved her from the attack,” Loh told the agency.
Tarrio told the Gateway Pundit that the injuries were “very serious, but not life-threatening.”
“Bevelyn got stabbed as well as two Proud Boys and the guy they were attacking. I got slashed, but it’s not serious,” he said.
The protest group had “nothing to do with these stabbings,” BLM DC tweeted. “Shame on [Chief of Police Peter Newsham] and [DC Police] for sharing false information,” the group said.
The force changed its account and told WUSA9 that it could no longer confirm the suspects were affiliated to BLM, the station said.
Police have not yet made any arrests.
