Police in Washington said they were investigating a stabbing near the White House after a confrontation between Trump supporters and another group in the early hours of November 4.
This footage, livestreamed to Facebook by Texas woman Jen Loh, shows the incident.
Loh said the she was among a group of conservatives, including Proud Boys members, who were walking from Harry’s Restaurant towards the White House when Christian activist Bevelyn Beatty was attacked.
Loh told Storyful that Beatty and a Proud Boys member were both stabbed. Loh said Proud Boys chairman Enrique Tarrio was also present.
“If it wasn’t for the three or four Proud Boys that were there, she [Beatty] would have been stabbed and really brutally beaten had they not saved her from the attack,” Loh told Storyful.
Loh describes herself on Twitter and Facebook as a leading member of right-wing political organizations called ‘American Up’ and ‘Texans United for America.’. She also describes herself on Twitter as a former vice president of Latinos For Trump. That organization confirmed in emails to Storyful that Loh was previously a member, but sought to distance themselves from her, writing: “We have no association with her and do not want our organization name tied to her name.”
A reporter with NBC cited police as saying the wounded were “associated with the Proud Boys group” and were being treated. Credit: Jen Loh via Storyful
