A local magistrate issued an arrest warrant on Monday for DeAndre Harris, 20, who is being charged with one count of malicious wounding, according to local reports.

Harris' attorney, Lee Merritt, claims that the new charges brought against his client are "clearly retaliatory".

Lt. Stephen Upman said an alleged victim went to the magistrate's office to describe the events leading up to a violent assault against Harris at the East Market Street parking garage.

Harris' warrant was issued two days after several dozen white nationalists again descended on Charlottesville for a brief rally at Emancipation Park, where a tarp covers the statue of Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee.

Harris was marching in opposition to the rally on August 12 when a scuffle broke out between a group of white supremacists and several counterprotesters at a downtown parking garage.

Harris was not in custody, the statement said, and efforts to reach him or his lawyer were not immediately successful.

The brutal attack on Harris went viral rather quickly due to the severity of the attack, where he was being beaten by a group of white supremacists with poles at a parking garage near the University of Virginia campus.

He is now charged with unlawful wounding in relation to the brawl.

Harris told WRAL in Raleigh, North Carolina that doctors used eight staples to seal his head together after the attack. Both are being held without bond.

Ramos was identified after posting about the attack on Facebook. He said in a television interview that the attack was "defensive" and denied being a white supremacist, as The Post has reported.

'I was there because, pretty much, I'm a conservative, ' he said. "There were some non-racist members who were going to a free speech rally". During the demonstrations, a auto plowed into a group of counterprotesters, killing a 32-year-old woman and injuring many others. A man has been charged with murder in Heyer's death.
