A 12-year-old Boulder, Colorado boy reportedly was assaulted by an adult while holding a Trump sign as he rode his bicycle this week.
Police report a woman drove by the boy on a moped, turned around, and then used a closed fist to strike the boy in the back of the head and arms several times while trying to take his Trump sign.
ABC Denver 7 reports that the incident occurred on Monday:
The boy told Denver7 he was just holding the sign between his arms and riding his bike when the alleged assault happened, contradicting what the Boulder police report states – that the boy had the sign showing on the back of his bike.
Recalling the attack, the boy told Denver7 the woman “just looked at me and laughed” as she passed him before she reportedly started hitting him.
The boy said he was confused as the attack was happening and told Denver7 he is disappointed with people who attack others solely for their political views.
'I like showing what I believe in,' the boy said. 'I didn’t want any conflict – I just wanted to show what I believe in.'
Police are investigating the incident.
