Assault arrest after Portland mayor complains

PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — A member of the right-wing Proud Boys protest group has been arrested following an assault in June of a man in Portland, Oregon.

The arrest Tuesday came a day after Portland’s mayor complained that police and prosecutors were essentially ignoring the violent protests within the city and not bringing people to justice.

The Oregonian/OregonLive reports that 23-year-old Donovon Lyle Flippo of Vancouver, Washington, is charged with third-degree assault, a felony, and fourth-degree assault, a misdemeanor. He was booked into jail. It wasn’t clear if he had an attorney.

Flippo and another Proud Boys member were indicted last month in connection with a June 8, 2018, assault. Authorities say the other man hasn’t yet been arrested.
