White supremacist stabs interracial couple and then threatens to kill BLM protesters at Trump rally
A white supremacist in Olympia, Washington stabbed an interracial couple this week, and then told police that he planned to attack Black Lives Matter protesters at a nearby Trump rally.
Rowe ended up grazing the woman with his knife, while plunging his knife into the man. The man chased Rowe and then tripped him as he tried to run away. Rowe fell into a car and was knocked unconscious until law enforcement officials arrived on the scene.
Rowe subsequently told police that if they released him from custody, he planned attend a pro-Trump rally and attack Black Lives Matter protesters. He has been charged with two counts of second-degree assault with a deadly weapon and one count of malicious harassment, The Olympian notes.
Rowe — who has a “white power” tattoo and a Confederate flag tattoo — told police that he belonged to a white supremacist group and said that he swore a “blood oath” to fight with minorities in the streets.
His bail has been set at $500,000.
