Minority Whip Katherine Clark’s ‘Daughter’ Arrested for Assaulting Police Officer During Antifa Riot

Newly installed House Democratic Whip Katherine Clark’s “daughter” was arrested on Saturday evening for allegedly spray-painting a monument, assaulting a police officer, and resisting arrest during an Antifa riot in Boston, Massachusetts.

The Boston Police Department reports:

Upon arrival officers observed an individual defacing the monument with spray paint. The tagging read “NO COP CITY” and “ACAB”. The suspect was later identified as Jared Dowell, 23, of Melrose.

During the arrest of Jared Dowell, a group of about 20 protesters began to surround officers while screaming profanities though megaphones on the public street causing traffic to come to a standstill. While interfering with the arrest of Jared Dowell, an officer was hit in the face and could be seen bleeding from the nose and mouth.  

Although the police knew the suspect as “Jared Dowell,” he is also known as “Riley Dowell,” Rep. Clark’s non-binary “daughter.”

Clark responded to the arrest on Sunday:

Dowell has been charged with Assault by Means of a Dangerous Weapon, Destruction or Injury of Personal Property and Damage of Property by Graffiti/Tagging. Dowell is expected to be arraigned in Boston Municipal Court.
