According to the San Diego Tribune, there was a heavy police presence on the Boardwalk at the time of the attack. The police declared an illegal assembly early on the afternoon of January 10th, 2021. The police arrested the violent attackers and last week a grand jury indicted them. They will now face charges stemming from those attacks. The indictment actually names Antifa as the attackers and they brought forth 29 felony counts, including conspiracy. They said that the defendants “are all affiliated with Antifa” and used “force, fear, and violence to further their interests and suppress the interests of others.”
Fox 5 San Diego reported:
A grand jury has indicted 11 people for allegedly attacking demonstrators during a march held in Pacific Beach last year by supporters of then-President Donald Trump, according to the San Diego County District Attorney’s Office.
Prosecutors say 29 felony counts have been filed against the defendants, including conspiracy to commit a riot, use of tear gas and assault with a deadly weapon, stemming from the Jan. 9, 2021, clash at a “Patriot March,” which was ultimately declared an unlawful assembly by San Diego police.
According to the indictment, the defendants responded to social media posts calling for “counterprotesting” about one week prior to Jan. 9, then showed up in Pacific Beach “dressed in black clothing, and armed with weapons and protective gear.”
Police and prosecutors allege that two counter-protest groups from San Diego and Los Angeles gathered at the event and attacked people perceived to be members of the “Patriot March” group. Some specific acts of which the defendants are accused include throwing a wooden lawn chair at a woman and striking her, hitting someone with a baseball bat, hitting someone with a flagpole, and attacking people with tear gas and a stun gun..”
The indictment was returned following 13 days of testimony heard by the grand jury, according to the D.A.’s Office.
They all pleaded not guilty.
