A white man who hates Black Lives Matter protesters, was arrested on a charge of assault after allegedly stabbing an interracial couple because they were kissing in public, according to police in Washington.
Olympia police said that they have arrested 32-year-old Daniel B. Rowe, who is a member of a white supremacist group, after being accused of plotting to attack Black Lives Matter protesters.
Rowe has been charged with second-degree assault with a deadly weapon and one count of malicious harassment. He was booked into jail, and his bail was set at $500,000.
According to the police investigation, Rowe attacked a black man and a white woman as they stood outside a bar while kissing each other.
Rowe slashed the woman with the knife before plunging the knife into the man. The man chased Rowe, who stumbled as he tried to flee.
Rowe eventually ran into a car and was knocked unconscious until the police arrived on the scene.
When he regained consciousness, Rowe told police that when he is released from custody, he will go to a Donald Trump rally, where he will stab Black Lives Matter protesters.
