There has been an allegation that a white woman was punched in the face during an altercation after the “White Lives Matter” rally. Metro Police said the incident happened at Corner Pub in Brentwood Saturday night around 7:45.
The authorities are still investigating the matter. The report, though, that the lady victim is a 30 years old and white, who was then sitting at a table with her friend, a 37-year-old black man. It is alleged that a group of about 20 to 30 white men and women entered the restaurant, and occupied a table behind the couple. The police said the large group then started talking about “White Lives Matter.”

The group is said to have told the white woman to leave the black man, even encouraging her to just sit with their all-white group instead.
Police reported that an argument followed, and the group decided to move outside. The lady with the black man companion continued arguing with another white woman in the big group, and police said that’s when a white man from the gang struck the victim in the face.
A video is circulating showing a woman with a bloody face inside a pub. It is not clear, however, if the people there captured the moment the exact moment the woman was punched in the face.
The Metro Police were called to respond to the incident. By the time, they have arrived, the group had already dispersed. The victim returned to the pub to give a statement to the police.
The police reported that according to the victim, the suspects fled in different vehicles, including a white van with a Wisconsin license plate and a sedan with a New York license plate.
The victim has yet to be identified by the police. The suspect in the case has been described as a white man in his 30s, who at the time of the incident was wearing a black jacket and black jeans. The police are asking the public’s help for any information about suspects or persons involved in the incident.
The completion of the probe will also clear matters and answers other relevant questions such as if the group being blamed for the incident are white nationalists or supremacists for a fact, and if they unduly provoked and hurt the victim.
