Castro Valley Man Accused Of Switchblade Assault On GOP Congressional Candidate
CASTRO VALLEY (CBS SF) – A man was arrested on suspicion of felony assault and other charges after allegedly attempting to stab a Republican congressional candidate with a switchblade over the weekend at in Castro Valley, according to the Alameda County Sheriff’s Office.

On Sunday, September 9, at approximately 3:45 p.m., deputies working at the Castro Valley Fall Festival were alerted to a possible knife attack at one of the vendor booths.
...
According to witnesses, 35-year-old Castro Valley resident Farzad Fazeli approached Peters at his booth in an aggressive manner and made disparaging, profanity-laced remarks about the Republican party and President Donald Trump.

During the incident, Fazeli allegedly pulled out a switchblade knife and attempted to stab Peters. The knife malfunctioned and the candidate became involved in a physical struggle with Fazeli, according to sheriff’s Sgt. Ray Kelly.

The suspect then fled the scene, but was detained a short time later by deputies and was found in possession of a switchblade knife, Kelly said.

Fazeli was arrested for felony assault, criminal threats, brandishing a weapon and possession of a switchblade knife and booked into Santa Rita Jail.
SO, anyone think this clown will do time?

He won't even be convicted by a jury there. He'll testify that the words of the GOP platform are violence and he was forced to defend himself from that violence and besides Trump and there will be at least one Bay area SJW on the jury to prevent a conviction.

It is possible he may just get fined, like this guy.
Man gets $1 fine for punching Unite the Right organizer in the head, reports say

But then again, the knife attack WAS a felony so...

Perp needs to do some time regardless.

A switchblade? What an idiot! Always use the right tool for the job.

CNN IGNORES SWITCHBLADE ATTACK ON GOP CONGRESSIONAL CANDIDATE
More than 24 hours after authorities announced the arrest of a California man who allegedly tried to stab a Republican congressional candidate, CNN has yet to inform its audience of the story.

Farzad Fazeli, 35, allegedly made disparaging remarks about the Republican Party before pulling out a switchblade and attempting to stab Rudy Peters at a festival Sunday, according to the Alameda County Sheriff’s Office.

Peters is the Republican nominee in California’s 15th Congressional District, where he is challenging incumbent Democratic Rep. Eric Swalwell.

The sheriff’s office arrested Fazeli on Tuesday and announced it to the public that afternoon.
Quick action by the cops, I guess CNN considered it not worth reporting...

Not news because no guns and no deaths.

So it's all good. :)

Mainly because it doesn't fit their narrative. If it had been a Trump supporter attacking a Democrat they would have ran the story 10 times an hour for a full week.
