A now-viral video shows two women, who were protesting President Donald Trump on Thursday, taking a “Make America Great Again” hat from a child and ripping up pro-Trump posters.
The incident escalated after the child’s mother shouted back at the women, both 21, and all three threatened one another with physical violence.
“They attacked my son,” says the boy’s mom. Two men later joined the quarrel and attempted to get the hat back.
In response, one of the women says: “Nobody touched your kid. Back up. I’m telling you to back the f*ck up right now.”
As the video continues, one of the men tries to retrieve the hat. Then, one of the women throws the hat away. The video ends with a confrontation between one of the suspects and the person filming.
A video of the altercation—which happened close to the Democratic National Convention (DNC) in Delaware—was uploaded to Twitter by a student-led, pro-Trump group. In its post, Students for Trump wrote that “radical leftists attacked” the 7-year-old because “he was simply showing his support” for Trump.
Donald Trump Jr. also shared the video.
According to heavy, both anti-Trump protesters—Camryn Amy and Olivia Winslow—were arrested.
A press release from the Wilmington Police Department says that Amy faces charges of first-degree robbery, second-degree conspiracy, two counts of offensive touching, and endangering the welfare of a child. She was arraigned and sent to Delores J. Baylor Women’s Correctional Institute on a $45,000 bond.
Winslow, meanwhile, was also arraigned but released on her own recognizance.
