A 34-year-old man was arrested in New Hampshire on Thursday after he attacked a 15-year-old Trump supporter who was wearing a “Make America Great Again” hat and two other adults at a polling site earlier this week.
Fox News reported that Windham Police Department arrested Patrick Bradley and charged him with simple assault and disorderly conduct.
“Police said the incident happened Tuesday as Bradley exited the voting location inside the high school and was walking by a Trump campaign tent occupied by several supporters,” Fox News reported. “As he passed by the tent, police said, Bradley slapped a 15-year old juvenile across the face and then assaulted two other adults who attempted to intercede.”
Bradley was also accused of throwing Trump signs and trying to destroy the tent.
The boy’s mother, Cathy Campbell, told Fox News, “My son was standing outside on the sidewalk and he said ‘have a nice night,’ he said it to everyone. But this man was triggered. He said ‘f— you’ to him and wound up his hand as fast as he could and slapped him across the face.”
The attack comes after a group of Republican volunteers were attacked over the weekend in Florida when a man rammed a vehicle through a tent where they were volunteering.
The alleged 27-year-old assailant, whom The Daily Wire is not identifying, “was arrested hours after police said his van plowed through the tent, narrowly missing volunteers who were set up the parking lot of a Walmart Superstore at the corner of Atlantic and Kernan boulevards about 3:50 p.m. on Saturday,” News 4 Jax reported. “He’s accused of two counts of aggravated assault on a person over 65 years old, criminal mischief and driving without a license.”
The Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office said that the suspect allegedly committed the attack because he said that “someone had to take a stand.”
The police report stated:
He stated that he went to the Walmart at 11900 Atlantic Blvd. to get some for and noticed the tent set up in the parking lot. He advised that after he got his food and a pack of cigarettes he went near the tent and parked. He willingly showed a video to us on his phone that was him talking prior to driving into the tent. He was a few aisles over in the parking lot. The suspect then showed another video to us of him driving towards the tent. He stated that [redacted] although the video showed people standing in front of the tent, so he could go run everything over. The suspect was upset that the video ended before ‘the good part’ as he described it. The suspect advised that he does not like President Trump and that is part of [reason]. He advised the other reason was because ‘it’s like someone shitting on your grave’ as the other reason.
Last week, law enforcement officials at Arizona State University were investigating a young man who was screaming on camera about wanting to kill Republicans.
“…townsquare, slash his throat!” the man said in apparent reference to President Donald Trump. “Every f***ing Republican! Suck my f***ing balls! Slash Republicans’ throats! Slash fascists’ throats! Death to fascists!”
