Police say woman hit after White Lives Matter rally

October 29, 2017 - 12:40 PM

BRENTWOOD, Tenn. - Police in Tennessee say they are searching for a man who allegedly hit a white woman who was seated at a pub with a black man.

Nashville police said in a statement Sunday that a group of white men and women entered the pub in Brentwood and sat behind the couple. A group member invited the woman to sit with them, and another member indicated the group was involved in the "White Lives Matter" movement.

The woman said a man then hit her in the face, causing a cut above her eye. She declined treatment.

It wasn't immediately clear whether the man being sought was part of the large group.

White nationalist groups rallied Saturday in Shelbyville. A second rally in Murfreesboro, about 33 miles southeast of Brentwood, was cancelled.
