ABC7NY, “9 Proud Boys, 3 Antifa suspects wanted in Manhattan clash after GOP speaker”

Police are looking to arrest 12 people in connection with a violent clash that erupted outside of a Republican club in Manhattan Friday night following a speech by the founder of a controversial far-right group.

Video shows men throwing punches, kicking a person knocked to the ground and chanting “USA” outside of the Metropolitan Republican Club on the Upper East Side.
