Police Say Teenage Girl Was Pepper Sprayed and Sexually Assaulted at Wisconsin Trump Rally
The Janesville Police Department says a 15-year-old girl was pepper sprayed and sexually assaulted by two men outside of a Donald Trump rally yesterday in Janesville, Wisconsin.
The incident took place in a crowd of approximately 1,000 people standing outside the Holiday Inn Express where the rally took place, the police department said in a statement.
A 15 year [sic] girl from Janesville was peppered sprayed in the crowd by a non-law enforcement person. A 19 year old woman from Madison received 2nd hand spray as well. Both individuals received medical attention at local hospitals. A male in the crown [sic] groped the 15 year girl, when she pushed him away; another person in the crown [sic] sprayed her. We are currently looking for two suspects, one for the sexual assault and one for the pepper spray.
The incident mentioned in the statement was apparently caught on camera. Clips show the teenage girl accusing a member of the crowd of groping her.
“You were touching my breast,” she says. “You fucking touched my chest.”
She shoves him and someone else sprays orange pepper spray directly in her face and into the eye of a girl standing next to her. As she pushes her way out of the crowd, people yell that she’s a “bitch” and a “goddamn communist nigger-lover.”
Donald Trump has so far acknowledged that his rallies “don’t have problems” and “the little problems we have are very minor, nobody gets hurt,” which is to say it’s a fairly safe bet he won’t come out in support of this woman.
