Alleged neo-Nazi attack in B.C. caught on video
CBC News has released a video showing a black Vancouver man being beaten by an alleged white supremacist who has since been charged in connection with a string of apparently racially motivated attacks.
A CBC News videographer happened upon an apparent road-rage incident while on duty on Vancouver’s West Side in December 2008.
The videographer, who has asked not be be named and has been subpoenaed to testify at an upcoming trial in connection with the assault, said he saw a Caucasian man beating Papi Ngoqo on a city street.
The faces of the two men are difficult to see because the incident took place at night and is brightly backlit by the glare of headlights.
But Ngoqo, believed to be of South African descent, is later clearly seen shaken and bleeding from the mouth as bystanders try to lend him aid.
The Crown accuses Shawn Donald Finlay MacDonald of a racially motivated assault.
When announcing the charges in December, police said they believe MacDonald, 39, and other men charged in separate attacks are members of a white supremacist group called Blood and Honour.
MacDonald also faces two other charges stemming from an assault on a Hispanic man and an aboriginal woman in 2010.
