Journalist Andy Ngo said he was recently chased and beaten in the streets of Portland while he was covering protests in Portland, Oregon.
“No journalist in America should ever face violence for doing his or her job,” Ngo said in a statement released on Wednesday night. “Yet on Friday, May 28, Antifa tried to kill me again while I was reporting on the ongoing protests and riots in Portland, Ore. for a new chapter of my book, ‘Unmasked: Inside Antifa’s Radical Plan to Destroy Democracy.'”
“I was chased, attacked and beaten by a masked mob, baying for my blood,” Ngo wrote on Twitter. “Had I not been able to shelter wounded and bleeding inside a hotel while they beat the doors and windows like animals, there is no doubt in my mind I would not be here today. Their words, like their actions, speak for themselves.” . . .
According to Ngo, an Antifa member became suspicious of him because he wasn’t engaging in criminal acts and throwing objects at police like the other members were. He began asking Ngo questions, but Andy did not respond. Ngo then walked away, but “a group of masked people in black followed and surrounded me.”
“As they interrogated me, one managed to pull off my mask and immediately yelled, ‘That’s Andy. Get him! Get him!’ As I sprinted through downtown Portland trying to flag down help, there was no visible police presence,” Ngo claimed. “One of the black-clad Antifa members tackled me to the ground in front of Pioneer Place Mall, punching my head and face repeatedly, while I pleaded for them not to kill me. All the time I could hear the angry cries and footsteps of the mob approaching.”

In the chaos, I managed to seize a moment when my attackers were distracted and crawled away. As soon as I could get to my feet, I sprinted inside the only business I could see that was open —The Nines Hotel. I begged hotel staff to call 911, but they refused and ordered me… pic.twitter.com/CWxwFS1nMH
