Black-Clad Protesters Swarm Rally, Assault 3

BERKELEY (AP) — More than 100 protesters dressed in black have pushed their way past police barricades and into a Berkeley park.

They assaulted at least three people by punching and kicking them.

At least one of those attacked was a right-wing male protester who showed up for a “Rally Against Hate” event where anti-rally protesters vastly outnumbered the rally’s supporters.

Police broke up the fights, using what appeared to be a smoke grenade to stop one scuffle.

The three people who were attacked ran behind police lines to escape.

The black clad protesters carried a large banner that identified them as anarchists.

Ten people have already been arrested, according to the Berkeley Police Department.
