12-year-old Colorado boy allegedly assaulted over Trump sign

A 12-year-old boy in Colorado was allegedly pummeled this week because he held a sign supporting President Trump, authorities said.

The boy was riding his bike with the sign in Boulder around 3 p.m. Monday when he was accosted by a woman on a moped, police told the Denver Post.

The woman drove up to the boy, sneering something to the effect of “you want something to look at?” and then punched the boy in the back of the head and arms several times and scratched him, police said.

She allegedly tried to snatch the sign, and then fled.

The suspect was described as a white woman in her 20s or 30s wearing a tan jacket, blue shirt and blue jeans. Her moped was gray or blue.

Police are still investigating the alleged assault.
