CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (WVIR) -

A man seen being beaten on video inside the east Market Street Parking Garage on August 12 is now facing a felony charge.

Charlottesville police say a person took out a warrant against Deandre Harris.

Harris is the 20-year-old man who was seen being attacked by a group of white nationalists after crowds dispersed following the “Unite the Right” rally. 

He's being charged with one count of malicious wounding.

The magistrate had a Charlottesville detective verify the facts in the warrant. 

Alex Micheal Ramos and Daniel Borden are both being charged with malicious wounding for attacking Harris.

Editor's Note: Harris has not been arrested and processed for jail intake, therefore, no booking photo is available at this time.
