The leader of the far-right Proud Boys has said he was one of four people stabbed after being “jumped by Black Lives Matter” mob early Wednesday in Washington, DC.
Enrique Tarrio told The Gateway Pundit that he was slashed in the stomach, while “multiple other members” were injured, including a man stabbed in the neck and a woman with them stabbed in the back.
The group said they were heading home after watching the election at a DC bar when they were jumped and knifed.
Livestreamed video caught part of the scuffle — with one man walking back to the videographer and saying, “I’m bleeding.”
After the attackers fled, Bevelyn Beatty — a black woman who previously dumped paint over the Black Lives Matter mural outside Trump Tower — was seen holding her lower back, saying, “They stabbed me.”
“She’s bleeding really badly!” gasped the videographer, Jen Loh, a former vice president of Latinos For Trump.
“We just got jumped by Black Lives Matter and they just stabbed Bevelyn Beatty,” Oh said in her video, which showed a trail of blood on the sidewalk.
Moments later, Oh went up to the man seen clutching his neck at the start of her clip — suddenly gasping, “Oh my God you’ve got tons of blood coming out of your neck!”
“Yes I do!” said the panicked-sounding man still clasping the wound.
The group flagged down police and medics, telling them, “We just got jumped by Black Lives Matter here.”
DC police said early Wednesday that they were looking for two men dressed all in black as well as a woman wearing black sweatpants, orange leggings and a dark gray coat — and “armed with a knife.”
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.
