Antifa Thug Viciously Attacks Journalist
Was just assaulted & had my phone stolen at @24hourfitness Hollywood Portland by someone I recognize at Antifa rallies. He first dumped liquid on me then stole my phone. Reporting to @PortlandPolice. I don’t know his identity & gym wouldn’t tell me. They got my phone back. pic.twitter.com/51GaBS7gZW— Andy Ngo (@MrAndyNgo) May 7, 2019

“As I was walking down the stairs to go to the locker room, liquid was dumped on my head from above,” said Ngo, “I ran up the stairs and yelled over the railing for a manager to come up. The suspect, who I recognize from the May Day Antifa events and other protests, approached me and accused me of lying about Antifa on my Twitter.”
“The operations manager came up and told him to stop. He yelled: ‘He’s a fascist.’ My attacker walked away,” added Ngo of Tuesday’s incident from the gym, “I exchanged information with the operations manager. Her colleague asked us what happened. The suspect returned and this is when I started to record on my phone.”
Ngo added that the suspect proceeded to knock his phone out of his hand after he began recording, and then took his phone and attempted to walk away with it.
“The suspect slapped the phone out of my hand, and it fell to the ground, damaging its case,” said Ngo, “I went to retrieve the phone from the floor. The suspect grabbed the phone from my hand and proceeded to leave, threatening to break it. The staff stopped him and retrieved my phone for me. The attacker has been identified.”
