An arrest has been made after an attack on a conservative activist on the University of California-Berkeley campus was caught on camera.

Zachary Greenberg, 28, was arrested on a warrant on Friday at in Berkeley, California, following a 10-day search, according to the San Francisco Chronicle.

He was held on $30,000 bail in Alameda County jail on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon likely to produce great bodily injury for the attack on Hayden WiIliams on February 19.

He is to be arraigned on Monday at the Wiley W. Manuel Courthouse in Oakland.

Neither Greenberg or Williams are students at the University of California-Berkeley.

In a statement to Campus Reform, Williams expressed his view of the news of his attacker’s arrest:

‘I am grateful to the University of California Berkeley Police Department for its dedication to identifying and arresting the man who attacked me. But while this is a moment for celebration, I remain disappointed by the UC Berkeley Administration, which allowed a culture of intolerance and violence toward conservatives to grow. I hope UC Berkeley’s leadership will seize on this moment-in-time to take deliberate steps to establish a zero tolerance policy when it comes to violence, and restore Berkeley’s legacy as ‘Home of the Free Speech Movement.’
