A Boulder, Colorado, woman riding a moped through a neighborhood allegedly assaulted a 12-year-old boy over a political campaign lawn sign supporting President Donald Trump.
“The suspect made a U-turn and approached the victim and began assaulting him because of his political banner. The suspect then attempted to take the banner but was unsuccessful,” police said as a woman rode her moped through a Boulder neighborhood.
Boulder police spokeswoman Shannon Aulabaugh affirmed that the woman pulled a U-turn before approaching the preteen and told him “you want something to look at,” or something to that effect before launching her assault, per Denver Post.
Aulabaugh then said that the woman, with a closed fist, struck the boy four or five times on the back of the head and arm before scratching her victim.
The woman reportedly tried to take the pro- Trump lawn sign before leaving the scene. Investigators believe the woman to be either in her 20s or 30s wearing a tan jacket, blue shirt, and blue jeans, and the woman rode a blue or gray moped, according to CBS Denver.
Currently, no arrests have been made and investigators are still looking into the alleged assault.
The alleged assault is not the first time in recent weeks where a minor has been assaulted over support for the Trump re-election campaign.
Two young women were recently arrested for stealing a 7-year-old boy’s Trump hat then throwing it into a construction site and ripping up some political signs while threatening to beat the boy’s mother for attempting to intervene. The incident was caught on camera and one of the women attempted to throw a punch at a man accompanying the mother and her young son.
The incident took place at the DNC when the mother and her child were waiting for a table at a nearby restaurant. The mother filmed the incident which led to the women’s arrests.
