Deandre Harris was peacefully counterprotesting during the Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville, Va. on August 12 when he was savagely beaten by a group of White supremacists.

Now, a local magistrate has issued a warrant for the 20-year old’s arrest for allegedly assaulting someone as he was being beaten with metal poles.

Harris, who suffered multiple injuries including a concussion, a head laceration requiring stitches, a knee injury, a fractured wrist and contusions, has been charged with unlawful wounding. He was beaten in a parking garage directly next to the Charlottesville police station by the White nationalists, but police officers didn’t intervene.

S. Lee Merritt, Harris’ attorney, told CBS during a phone interview that he is working with police to negotiate a plan of surrender. The lawyer also said the police don’t have grounds to charge Harris with anything.

Lt. Stephen Upman of the Charlottesville Police Department is not identifying which of the several men who brutally assaulted Harris is claiming the role of victim.
