Daniel Borden (Hamilton County, Ohio, Justice Center)

An arrest has finally been made in the brutal attack of Deandre Harris that occurred during the Unite the Right racist rally in Charlottesville, Va. Police arrested Mason, Ohio, resident Daniel Borden, 18, Friday evening and charged him with malicious wounding, according to WCPO.

As reported by The Root, Harris was attacked by a group of white supremacists in a parking garage that was less than a hundred feet away from a police precinct.


“They were beating me with poles. I have eight staples in my head, a broken wrist and a chipped tooth,” Harris told The Root.

Although other men were featured in the photo taken by photographer Zach Roberts, so far Borden is the only one who was arrested, and he is currently being held at the Hamilton County Justice Center in Ohio.

Other people of interest have been identified from photos and video that were taken before and after the attack, but it looks as if everyone’s favorite “I’m not racist because I’m ‘Spanish’” racist is also a suspect.
