3 arrested after NY street brawls following far-right event

3 arrested in NYC clashes following speech by leader of far-right Proud Boys group

Cuomo says he holds President Trump responsible and says the appearance of the Proud Boys at the Republican club was a "political tactic".

"I ripped that m*****r f*****'s mask off", one of the men bragged, "and f***ing hit him in the head".

After a brutal brawl that broke out when left-wing Antifa members "intercept [ed]" a group of right-wing "Proud Boys" in Manhattan Friday night, police say they are looking for a total of twelve people caught on video resorting to violence, including three Antifa and nine Proud Boys.

The Proud Boys have been deemed a hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center and have been associated with alt-right and white supremacist actions. Video from both events spread like wildfire across the internet, but while there have yet to be any charges in the Portland incident, NYPD arrested three men over the weekend and announced additional charges on Monday.

"The NYPD is also now reviewing additional video and other evidence from events last night to determine if other crimes were committed and, if so, identify those perpetrators and make further arrests as warranted", the NYPD told Bustle in a statement. That led to speculation the department did not have the resources it needed to respond to the violence.

They're wanted for riot and attempted assault. "Any and all information on those individuals, we continue to seek information".

So far the NYPD has made three arrests connected to the brawl that erupted a few blocks from the Metropolitan Republican Club.

Damage included smashed windows, a spray-painted door and a keypad lock covered in glue, according to state party officials. A note left at the scene claimed that the damage was "just the beginning".




Stewart-Cousins, who would become the first black woman to lead a majority conference should Democrats gain control of the narrowly divided chamber this fall, called the McInnes invitation "a frightening place to be".

"There is certainly no place for that kind of violence or disorder anywhere in New York City".

The campaign office of Marc Molinaro, the Republican candidate for governor, is located in the building.

And during his talk at the club, founder McInnes celebrated the assassination of a Japanese socialist politician even as he waved a sword at antifa protesters who were demonstrating against him.

"I heard them screaming and swearing at some guy on the ground", Horse told BuzzFeed.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo is also speaking out about the incidents that took place, asking the Federal Bureau of Investigation to look into it as well as the state police Hate Crimes Unit.

The Proud Boys pummel an Antifa protester.

McInnes had been invited to speak at the club by Ed Cox, the New York Republican Party chairman. "You have proven yourself to be unworthy of your responsibilities".
