Man knifed in back at Portland protest: ‘I was stabbed for being a conservative journalist’
A videographer knifed near the scene of a protest outside Portland’s federal courthouse said Wednesday he was nearly killed over his right-wing politics and activism.
“I was stabbed for being a conservative journalist,” said Andrew Duncomb, 25, who films demonstrations and other political events under the moniker “Black Rebel.”
Duncomb, who is Black and a vocal supporter of President Donald Trump, told The Oregonian/OregonLive that he had traveled last Friday to Portland from his home in Northern California to document the nightly unrest outside the Mark O. Hatfield United States Courthouse and county Justice Center…
Duncomb said he eventually handed his video camera to a friend and decided to confront one of the men from the group.
“Someone’s stalking us,” the friend can be heard saying in the video as Duncomb approaches the man, who wore a respirator, goggles and a pair of brown Carhart overalls, near Southwest Salmon Street and Fourth Avenue.
“Hey buddy, why are you following us?” Duncomb says as he comes up from behind the man and wraps his arm around the man’s shoulder, the video shows.
The man then stabs Duncomb without saying a word, the video shows.

Dave Urbanski of The Blaze provides an update on the suspect:
Police said they found one male suspect held down by several bystanders and one male victim with a stab wound. Police added that they tried to create a crime scene, but the crowd’s aggressive behavior and lack of community cooperation prevented them from doing so.
Blake David Hampe was arrested at the scene, the paper said, citing court records. Hampe, 43, told police that Duncomb had “set up” on him and tried to choke him, the Oregonian added, citing a probable cause affidavit.
Records show Hampe faces charges of second-degree assault and unlawful use of a weapon, both felonies. He remained in jail Thursday on $255,000 bail.
According to Andy Ngo, the suspect has a record:

Will the media describe this as a mostly peaceful stabbing?
