Two prominent members of the far-right Proud Boys men's group have been charged with felony assault over a 2018 attack on a critic in Portland, prosecutors announced Tuesday.

Police have already arrested one of the Proud Boys, Donovon Flippo. The other Proud Boy wanted in the case, Tusitala "Tiny" Toese, posted recently on Facebook that he's in American Samoa, although he said he will return to Portland to face his legal charges.

The arrests mark another blow to the Proud Boys, a pro-Trump men's group created by conservative provocateur Gavin McInnes that requires its members to abide by various rules and initiation requirements, including a restriction on masturbating. Other members of the group were arrested last year after an attack in New York, and McInnes himself quit the group shortly after that.
