2 Men Seen Assaulting Deandre Harris During Aug. 12 Rally Remain Unidentified
CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (WVIR) - Charlottesville Police Detective Declan Hickey tells the Washington Post, he's exhausted everything he can do to locate two additional suspects in a beating following the August 2017 Unite the Right Rally.
Four men have been convicted in the violent beating of Deandre Harris in the Market Street Parking Garage.
But police have been trying to find two more suspects, a man with a red beard and trucker hat, and a man with brown hair and sunglasses.
At this point, Hickey says the best hope for identifying them is if they pop back on the radar at another rally or anger their friends.
CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (AP) - It's been 1 ½ years since the deadly white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, but two men seen on camera assaulting a black man in a parking garage remain unidentified.
Charlottesville police detective Declan Hickey is quoted by The Washington Post as saying the investigation into the Aug. 12, 2017, beating of Deandre Harris, has hit a dead end.
Three people linked to white nationalist, pro-Confederacy or anti-government beliefs are serving time in jail or prison, and a fourth awaits sentencing. None of them knew each other before the attack.
The two men at large have come to be known as "Red Beard" and "Sunglasses." Hickey says the best hopes for identifying the men are if they "pop back on the radar" at another rally or "piss off their wife or girlfriend."
