Andrew Walls26 years old, allegedly the man in that video, which the victim’s father later posted Facebook Page.
A man of the same name identifies himself as a member of the Proud Boys in a January 2021 story in Akron signaling magazine. The man was also around the same age and looked very similar to the man seen in the video of the attack, according to few area and international publications.
In the video of the attack, a man appears to be passionately exchanging racial slurs with a group of white men outside a bar. Then he gave up on the conversation when he saw a group of people walking down the street and walking up to the age of 23 Cameron Morgan.
At that point, Morgan began to object to the man’s rhetoric. She spoke only a few words before the man addressed her using words that were offensive to both women and Negroes. The man then told her to “shut up” and punched her in the face.
The victim’s sister recorded the incident and shared it on Instagram. Then she sent the video to her father; he posted it on his social media accounts.
“I am devastated right now. My 23 year old daughter Cameron, who won’t hurt anyone and has a heart of gold, was punched by this racist guy last night at Highland Square in Akron for no reason.” David Morgan. “She probably weighed about 100 pounds. Can someone please help me identify him! Please! I need to report fees! I am heartbroken and heartbroken.”
The victim’s father also revealed on social media that his daughter was dragged to the street by her hair and eventually had to flee the scene to receive treatment for her concussion before the police arrived.
Akron police have reported the scene Immediately after the fight dispersed, an officer of the department told Law & Crime. However, Walls was the only person still at the scene and appeared to have turned rough after a fight, according to an incident report. The report filed by the response officer also said that Walls claimed he was the victim of a robbery.
Ms. Morgan reported the incident the next day, and soon people around the city, state and country began sharing videos of the attack. Police also benefited from viewing the video and within 24 hours issued an arrest warrant for Walls, inmate records reveal.
Walls surrendered to police on Monday afternoon – a day after his arrest warrant was issued, inmate records reveal. He was placed in Summit County Jail overnight but was released the next day following his arrangement.
He is facing two counts of assault for allegedly assaulting Morgan and another woman, according to Akron City Court Records, and once possessed a weapon while intoxicated. Assault cases have two distinct numbers.
Walls applied for $25,000 bail shortly after he was settled and released from custody. A temporary restraining order has been granted to his victim.
He doesn’t seem to have a lawyer yet.
Sheriff Akron Steve Mylett released a statement on Monday saying he was “deeply concerned” by what “clearly appears to be a racially motivated attack”.
In that statement, he also revealed that the Akron Police Department had contact the FBI to see if the incident warrants a hate crime investigation.
“Hate has no place in our dear city,” said Sheriff Mylett. “We will use every resource at our disposal to get anyone involved in crimes motivated by race or prejudice before justice. We stand in solidarity with the victim of this horrific attack and her family to ensure justice is served.”
Law & Crime has reached out to an FBI spokesperson to inquire about a possible hate crime investigation. No response has been given.
