UCLA Police Make First Arrest in Attack on Palestine Solidarity Encampment

18-year-old Charged With Assault with a Deadly Weapon; Bail Set at $30,000

By Dolores Quintana

After three weeks, the University of California Police Department at UCLA apparently made the first arrest among the group of pro-Israeli men who viciously attacked the UCLA students, faculty members, and journalists at the UCLA Palestine Solidarity Encampment. The members of the encampment were left to their own devices during the four-hour attack on April 30 and May 1 and defended themselves successfully without any aid from private UCLA security, UC Police on campus, the LAPD, or the UCLA administration. 

According to multiple sources, including CNN’s Kyung Lah, and Sean Beckner-Carmichael, an independent journalist, 18-year-old Edan On, who was caught on video by livestream reporters during the attack allegedly committing multiple assaults, was arrested on Thursday morning. He was also observed allegedly pulling a woman’s hair on April 28 after the rally held by The Israeli American Council. 

On was one of several assailants who were identified and named by independent journalists and CNN, in their investigative report. Until Thursday, not one assailant had been arrested. 

Edan On has been charged with 245 PC – assault with a deadly weapon. Carmichael-Beckner stated on social media that the Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department had informed him that On was suspected of committing the assault with the intention of “great bodily injury.” He is being held on $30,000 bail and he is scheduled for his first court hearing on May 28. 

CNN reporters including Kyung Lah were able to verify Edan On’s actions at UCLA because his mother wrote Facebook posts praising her son for being part of the attack. She later attempted to deny that her son was at UCLA at all.

A report from the Beverly Hills Courier states, while withholding his name, that Edan On is a student at Beverly Hills High.
