Radical Antifa Poet Convicted of Stabbing Proud Boy on Jan. 6 – Watch Incident
A poet/journalist connected to the left-wing Antifa group was found guilty of stabbing a member of the Proud Boys at a Jan. 6 protest at the New York State capitol.
The Antifa member, Alexander Contompasis was convicted of first-degree assault and other charges related to the 2021 stabbing in Albany by a jury.
This happened while the rioting took place at the U.S. Capitol. At the Albany capitol, Trump supporters and Antifa supporters broke out at a protest that was captured on a surveillance video.
The Times Union got the video of the attack and revealed how a fight between Trump supporters and Antifa supporters ended in two stabbings. A person was seen on the video swinging wildly at pro-Trump supporters before police entered in to break up the fight. The attacker walked off as the video ends.
Several arrests were made after the incident and one of the victims suffered an eviscerated bowel. Police said they found a knife in Contompasis’ car that they believed was used in the assault.
One of the victims said that he was approached by an Antifa member after he was stabbed and claimed that he said to the victim, “I’m coming for you. I know who you are. I know where you live.”
Police later identified the man as Contompasis and he was charged with the attack. Prosecutors made the case that the man had published posts on social media supportive of the Antifa political group. Contompasis denied that he was a “member” of Antifa.
Along with the first-degree assault charge, he was convicted of first-degree attempted assault, second-degree assault, and felony possession of a weapon.
Contompasis could face as many as 40 years in prison for the charges he has received. He will be sentenced on November 18.
