On Tuesday, a Grand Jury indicted 23-year-old Gage Halupowski, one of the black-masked Antifa, on four charges for attacking an elderly man and his Good Samaritan during a June 29 violent protest downtown in Portland, Oregon.

According to The Oregonian’s report, Gage Halupowski, one of many Antifa involved in the fight at Pioneer Courthouse Square, was scheduled for arraignment on Wednesday and is facing charges of second-degree assault, unlawful use of a weapon, attempted assault of a public safety officer, and interfering with a peace officer.

Halupowski was captured on video as he and his group attacked an elderly man who was walking through their marching area.

The video, posted by Ian Miles Cheong, Human Events Managing Editor, showed a group of thugs grabbing an elderly man with white hair and beating him with a crowbar and spraying him with mace. A big man in a black shirt with a red beard, Adam Kelly, tried to intervene but Antifa members beat him as well, striking him over his head before spraying him with mace. Yet the man did not give up on helping the elderly man.

Kelly headed over to help the elderly man but then he was attacked again by masked Antifa, who shoved him away and up onto the sidewalk, where he was sprayed again from an industrial-sized can of mace.

Adam Kelly then was taken to the hospital. The probable cause affidavit said that an officer saw Halupowski run up behind Kelly and strike him on the head with an expandable baton.

Once able to get to his feet, the elderly man continued walking away from the violent protesters screaming at him.

A man with a camera stepped in and handed the bleeding elderly man a cloth to wipe his face. The elderly man then held onto his rescuer’s hand and the man walked him safely away from the crowd, the video showed.

The violence and chaos had escalated to the point where the Portland Police Bureau was forced to declare a civil disturbance and unlawful assembly. During the violent protests led by black-masked Antifa, multiple citizens, police officers, and at least one journalist were injured and three people were arrested, as reported by The Oregonian
