Journalist Andy Ngo works in Portland, Oregon, which has become a hotbed for the far left group Antifa.

Ngo has repeatedly reported on the group. Now, a man he believes he recognized from an Antifa rally assaulted him at a gym.

Journalist Andy Ngo Posts Video of Possible Antifa Member Allegedly Assaulting Him and Stealing His Phone

Journalist Andy Ngo posted a video on Twitter of a man he claimed to recognize from “Antifa rallies” allegedly assaulting him and stealing his phone.

“Was just assaulted & had my phone stolen at @24hourfitness Hollywood Portland by someone I recognize at Antifa rallies,” Ngo wrote via Twitter. “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.”

“You want to video me like everyone else,” the man can be heard saying as he approached Ngo and grabbed his phone. “I will f*cking break your phone.”

See the video in Ngo’s tweet:

Ngo released this statement about the attack:

Less than a week ago, a masked protester attacked Ngo at a ‘May Day’ event, which devolved into a near riot.

Violent Clashes Erupt in Portland Just as Police Announce May Day Event Was ‘Peaceful’

Violent May Day clashes erupted in Portland moments after police initially announced that the day’s events had mostly been peaceful.

“Overall, the events were peaceful in nature,” Portland police said in an initial statement at around 7:30 p.m. on the evening of May 1. “For a short time, some streets were blocked in the Southwest waterfront area. The police sound truck made announcements for people to get out of the street for everyone’s safety. The group eventually moved back to the park and then dispersed.”

But in a later statement at around 10 p.m., police noted that a disturbance had taken place, in which “an estimated 60 people were involved in a fight and someone may have deployed mace.”…

In one video posted by freelance journalist Andy Ngo, Patriot Prayer leader Joey Gibson is seen talking to someone as a masked black-clad individual runs up and hits him with pepper spray before turning the stream towards Ngo and his camera.

“I was sprayed in the face point blank with pepper spray outside the @CiderRiot, where Antifa had amassed,” Ngo wrote. “They cheered as I was blinded. Before that, they threatened me & brought up my mother’s name.”

Ngo deserves a lot of credit, not only for his reporting, but for having the guts to wade into such hostile territory.
