A US Naval Officer has been stabbed by an Antifa member because he is white, blonde and clean-cut.
Joshua Witt, 26, took to his Facebook page to post about the incident in his hometown of Sheridan, Colorado and says he was lucky to survive the frenzied knife attack.
Witt, a boatswain’s mate with the Navy, says he has no tattoos or items of clothing that could possibly indicate he is a neo-Nazi, but he says that his friends have explained the reason why the Antifa member attacked him.
It’s his blonde hair and clean-cut style.
Daily Mail reports: Witt’s cut is similar to what people have identified as the “neo-Nazi cut” after countless images have flashed on TV and online from the deadly Charlottesville, Virginia protests. His cut is long-on-top, buzzed-on-the-sides.
Witt wrote ‘Sooooooo apparently I look like a neo-nazi and got stabbed for it… luckily I put my hands up to stop it so he only stabbed my hand.’
The assailant, Witt says, was looking to do much more damage.
‘I’m just glad I have good reflexes and at least put my hands up cause the dude was aiming for my head.’
The attack appeared to be random and unprovoked by Witt. He shares he was on his way to get a milkshake and was about to get out of his car.
‘Please keep in mind there was no conversation between me and this dude I was literally just getting out of my car.’
Witt, whose Facebook says he’s a boatswain’s mate for the Navy, heard the alleged assailant say; ‘You one of them neo-Nazis?’
The confrontation turned bloody in a matter of seconds. Witt says ‘As the dude was swinging a small pocket knife over my car door, then he took off running and I was just sitting there in shock.’
‘What the heck dude I have no tattoos that would indicate anything like that. There is nothing on the car that I am aware of that might suggest it. My head is not shaved.’
Witt replied to a Facebook friend expressing concern: ‘I just don’t understand this world anymore lol people are crazy.’
He also said the police are looking for the suspect, he filed a report immediately.
