CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. – The Charlottesville Police Department said Monday Deandre Harris, 20, of Suffolk is wanted for an assault that occurred during the white supremacist rally that occurred on August 12, according to CBS19.
The victim reportedly went to the magistrate’s office to try and obtain the warrant after presenting officials with his account of what happened during the incident. The magistrate then asked a detective to verify the facts the victim gave them.
