A disturbing video shows a group of white supremacists brutally attacking a young black man Saturday in Charlottesville, Va.

The footage, recorded by The Daily Caller News Foundation, captures at least five individuals beating up on a young black man with heavy objects, including large wooden planks and sticks.

The incident took place in the early afternoon, shortly after police cleared out Emancipation Park (formerly Lee Park). A skirmish broke out inside a parking garage, right next door to the Charlottesville Police Department.

At least one of the men appeared to be holding a shield with the logo of American Vanguard, a fringe white nationalist group.

Jason Charter, a Washington, D.C.-based activist, said he was present outside the parking garage.

“When I arrived, I saw multiple members of a white supremacist group beating senselessly an African American man while the police stood there and watched,” Charter said.

It is unknown if the attack was provoked by a specific incident, or if the attack was simply due to the young man’s skin color. Violent outbursts by both white supremacists and counter-protesters throughout the day left many injured.

Violence in Charlottesville left three dead, and scores injured as members of the white supremacist movement faced massive counter-protests during a scheduled rally Saturday.
