A suspect has been identified in the vicious physical attack on Hayden Williams, the conservative student and Turning Point USA member who was recruiting on the UC Berkeley campus last week.

The UC Berkeley police are waiting for a felony warrant to make an arrest.

Frank Miles reports at FOX News:

Warrant sought in UC-Berkeley attack on conservative activist as Citizens United Foundation offers big reward

In a statement, Citizens United said: “Any person having information related to this crime is requested to contact Citizens United Foundation at the following email address: BerkeleyThugReward@citizensunited.org. In the email, please provide contact information and details of the information in your possession, including relevant facts. Any information provided will be promptly forwarded to the UC Berkeley Police Department.”

On Tuesday, the media relations office for UC-Berkeley told Fox News there were no updates in the case. The UC-Berkeley police department website’s most recent update is from Friday. After several efforts to contact the public information officer for the police department, Fox News was told he was out sick, and that there were no updates to report.

UC-Berkeley Assistant Vice Chancellor Dan Mogulof told Fox News: “This is all the information we are releasing for the time being, pending the district attorney’s review. The University of California Police Department (UCPD) has concluded its investigation into the February 19th assault on the UC Berkeley campus. Based on the results of that investigation, the department is seeking a felony warrant from the Alameda County District Attorney for the identified suspect. The District Attorney will evaluate the case. If the warrant is issued, UCPD will immediately pursue the suspect’s arrest.”

Does anyone believe this process would take so long if the attacker was a MAGA hat wearing Trump supporter and the victim was a leftist?

Williams appeared on FOX and Friends yesterday to discuss new details:

On a side note, take a look at how the Washington Post is framing this story. It’s another case of conservatives pouncing.
