LAPD have arrested an Antifa member who stabbed a Latino man during an August 14 riot near LA City Hall. Eric Cohen, 30, of Long Beach, California, has been charged with attempted murder and is being held on a $1 million bail.

Cohen stabbed a man on August 14 at around 2 PM near the intersection of 1st Street and Spring Street. He allegedly used a knife to stab the victim once in the upper right chest area. The victim was later hospitalized for a lacerated heart and punctured lung.

The Antifa member and suspect changed his hair colour, following the attempted murder at the riot last month. The “Choose Freedom March” rallied to protest against the city’s "medical tyranny, mandatory vaccinations and vaccine passports." However, they were soon met by an opposing group of Antifa, who were dressed in "black bloc" gear, who called for "no safe spaces for fascists."

Footage of the stabbing was shared on social media by video journalist Ford Fischer.

"This is the stabbing in slow motion," he wrote. "If you watch closely, you’ll actually see that while the person stabbed continues to fight, even deploying mace against antifa activists, blood starts to drip into his purple shirt."

Multiple search warrants were served in Los Angeles and Orange Counties. The investigation is ongoing. Detectives are asking anyone who may be a victim or has additional information regarding Eric Cohen to contact Major Crimes Detective Meesri at (213) 486-7362.
