A 24-year-old man who participated with other masked Antifa supporters in attacking conservatives at a June demonstration in Portland was sentenced Friday to nearly six years in prison for an assault with a metal baton that left a man's head deeply lacerated.

Gage Halupowski pleaded guilty to second-degree assault for the attack that left cuts on the victim's head which required 25 staples to close.

After the assault, police saw Halupowski collapse his metal baton and conceal it in his pants, FOX 12 Oregon reported.

Authorities say Halupowski attacked Adam Kelly as Kelly was attempting to help another man who'd been assaulted.
