But the victim had revealed to police that he had actually told Von in advance that he was going to spend the night. The victim revealed that Von’Du punched him in the face up to five times, strangled him, dragged him across the floor, and shoved him headfirst into the bed frame, rendering him unconscious and bleeding profusely.
There is a video on the Internet of Von’s arrest where he told police,
“You’re taking me down because I was assaulted in my own apartment as someone else would not understand that his privilege does not extend to my apartment.”
“As a Black man, I’m being arrested for defending myself in my apartment. And just because his ass got beat up because he would not leave when I asked five times, I’m being arrested… instead of someone being arrested for violating me.”
