Two More Proud Boys Arrested, Charged in NYC Attack: NYPD

Two additional members of the far-right Proud Boys group were arrested and charged Thursday for their alleged roles in a vicious October attack on the streets of Manhattan. Authorities confirmed to The Daily Beast that Jake Freijo, 25, and David Kuriakose, 35, both face riot and assault charges stemming from an October 12 incident that occurred around 8:40 p.m. in Manhattan’s Upper East Side. After leaving a speech by group founder Gavin McInnes, a group of more than a dozen Proud Boys got into a fight with a passerby on the street. The Proud Boys can be seen kicking and stomping on the victim in video of the encounter, and one man can be heard yelling “faggot” before the fight was broken up. Three men were arrested and charged the night of the incident, and three more were arrested and charged 10 days later.
