White Supremacist Caught on Video Sucker-Punching Woman: Berkeley Protester Faces Calls for Arrest
A notorious white supremacist was caught on camera sucker-punching a woman in the melee that erupted Saturday in Berkeley, Calif. between pro- and anti-Trump demonstrators.
Nathan Damigo of the white nationalist group Identity Europa was identified by multiple witnesses as the man seen in a viral video lunging at an unsuspecting woman with dreadlocks and viciously punching her before she had a chance to react.

Damigo is an Iraq War veteran and convicted felon who was released from prison in 2014 after serving five years for armed robbery. Damigo previously pulled a gun on a cab driver, erroneously believing the man was Iraqi, according to the Southern Poverty Law Center.
He is currently unemployed, living on a family compound in Oakdale, Calif.
