Witness and filmmaker Ford Fischer told Fox News that after the windows of the Marine recruitment office were broken, Antifa threatened him and told him to flee the scene.
“After I filmed the Antifa break the Marine Corps office window and throw a torch into a dumpster, one of them called a few over to confront me,” Fischer said. “They basically told me to leave, implying attack if I didn’t. I left. ‘Get the f*** back. Cops aren’t here. They won’t help you.’”
Neither group protesting received the required permits to host rallies in the city and authorities banned masks as well as a list of objects that could have been used as weapons Friday.
