Indictment handed down for Antifa member believed responsible for battery of journalist Andy Ngo

The person believed to be responsible for the attack on journalist Andy Ngo has been indicted on a felony charge of robbery in the third degree by a grand jury in Multnomah County Oregon. 
John Colin Hacker, a member of the Portland Oregon Antifa chapter was implicated in the attack, that included Nog’s phone being taken from him as staff members of a 24 Hour Fitness  attempted to separate Hacker from Ngo in May of 2019, according to the Post Millennial. Ngo’s phone also had liquid poured all over it and Hacker can be seen in footage yelling, “I will break your f*cking phone,” after he grabbed it from the journalist.At the time of the incident, Ngo tweeted that he was “just assaulted & had my phone stolen at @24hourfitness Hollywood Portland by someone I recognize at Antifa rallies.

“He first dumped liquid on me then stole my phone. Reporting to @PortlandPolice. I don’t know his identity & gym wouldn’t tell me. They got my phone back,” the journalist said.

“I hope last week’s indictment of Mr Hacker signals a change in the prosecutor’s office in Portland,” Ngo said, according to a press release cited by PM were they noted that an active arrest warrant has been issued for Hacker.

“For years, too many violent extremists falsely claiming to be fighting for ‘racial justice’ have gotten away with campaigns of terror and violence against journalists and citizens.”

The court document states, “The said Defendant(s), John Colin Hacker on or about May 07, 2019, in the County of Multnomah, State of Oregon, did unlawfully and knowingly, while in the course of committing and attempting to commit Theft, and with the intent of preventing and overcoming resistance to defendant’s taking of property and retention of the property immediately after the taking, use and threaten the immediate use of physical force upon Andy Ngo, contrary to the statutes in such cases made and provided and against the peace and dignity of the State of Oregon.”
