The woman who assaulted an Alpha News journalist last month has been identified as 37-year-old Lauren Patricia Peterson and was charged this week in Hennepin County District Court.

According to a criminal complaint obtained by Alpha News, Peterson faces charges of third-degree rioting, disorderly conduct, and two counts of fifth-degree assault.

Photojournalist Rebecca Brannon, an independent journalist who contributes video and photo stories for Alpha News, was attacked by Peterson during an Aug. 24 protest in Minneapolis organized in response to the shooting of Jacob Blake.

Peterson and a group of fellow Black Lives Matter agitators stalked Brannon as she walked to her car, shouted profanities at her, and eventually assaulted her.

The agitators later stole Brannon’s phone from her and tossed it into a fountain. Although her phone was destroyed, she was able to recover video of the altercation from the phone’s SD card.

The charge of third-degree rioting comes with a sentence of up to one year in jail and/or a $3,000 fine, while the remaining charges each come with a penalty of up to 90 days in jail and/or a $1,000 fine.
