Cuomo links GOP, Trump to violence

New York City officials are speaking out against the Proud Boys after members of the alt-right group were caught on video beating up protestors outside of the Metropolitan Republican Club in Manhattan on Friday. No serious injuries were reported, however, and police said the victims refused medical attention.

Before McInnes had spoken at the event, New York Republicans, including Chairman Ed Cox and Republican gubernatorial nominee Marc Molinaro, called on Cuomo to condemn vandalism at the building in protest to McInnes's visit.

"Last night the Metropolitan Republican Club was vandalized by the leftist hate group Antifa, who also left a note promising "this is just the beginning' and threatening more violence", the club posted on Facebook.McInnes, who is also a co-founder of Vice Magazine, had his Twitter account suspended earlier this year, along with that of the Proud Boys".

They explained that they were aware that somebody had vandalized Metropolitan Republican Club last Thursday, by spray painting anarchist symbols on the front doors of the clubhouse.

Shea said the security camera video shows one of the masked men throw something, possibly a bottle, at the Proud Boys.

Cuomo said he had also requested that the Federal Bureau of Investigation assist.

"We will not tolerate any violence on the streets of New York City, and anyone, from any group, who participates in violence will be vigorously investigate", Shea said. Three protesters were arrested in that separate incident.

"The NYPD is also now reviewing additional video and other evidence from events last night to determine if other crimes were committed and, if so, identify those perpetrators and make further arrests as warranted", the NYPD told Bustle in a statement.

"Why would the Republican Party at their main club invite the Proud Boys?"

"I am disturbed and disgusted by the videos I've seen of members of the neo-fascist, white supremacist Proud Boys group in hate-fueled mob violence in the streets of New York City", New York City Public Advocate Tish James said in a statement. If you see these, feel free to take them down. "If you know anything, the NYPD wants your help", De Blasio said in a statement. "The NYPD has canvassed the area to obtain video and additional evidence".

NYPD is only now seeking further information about those involved in the attack.

"Thus far, no one has filed a complaint with the NYPD regarding this incident".

Police say they are searching for 12 members of far-right and far-left groups in connection to several brawls after a private Republican club in Manhattan hosted a speaker from the far-right group Friday.

Proud Boys, a misogynistic and anti-Muslim fraternity known for acts of political violence, has been characterized as a hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center.
