Arrest Made in Beating of Charlottesville Teacher, Second Suspect Sought

New Video Shows Man Shooting Gun Near Crowd of Counter Protesters in Charlottesville

A metro Atlanta man caught on camera attacking another man during a white supremacist rally in Charlottesville is wanted by police.

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

According to WKRC-TV, Deondre Harris was badly beaten by several men armed with poles and boards.

Harris told WRAL in Raleigh, North Carolina that the beating resulted in a broken wrist, chipped tooth, busted lip and eight staples to close the wound in his head. Ramos is now wanted by the Charlottesville police and has a last known address in Marietta, Georgia.

The rally, scheduled to begin at noon August 12, fell quickly into chaos as white nationalist groups entered the park hours earlier.

Police were seeking help finding a third man, Alex Michael Ramos, 33, who also was allegedly involved in the beating of Harris.

Anyone with information on Ramos' whereabouts is asked to call police. "When Dan was advised yesterday afternoon that a warrant for his arrest had been issued by Virginia authorities, he immediately surrendered himself to the Federal Bureau of Investigation and, later, the Hamilton County Sheriff's Department". The 18-year old is in custody in Cincinnati, Ohio. "Dan repeatedly requested protection from Charlottesville Police and was ignored".

In a tweet posted Sunday, King said police officials have told himself and Merritt that they are relying on the activist's Twitter account to identify the other assailants. James Alex Fields Jr., 20, of OH, has been charged with second-degree murder in that case.
