An unidentified 15-year-old girl was pepper-sprayed outside of a Holiday Inn Express in Janesville, Wisconsin at a rally for Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump on March 29 (video below).
The girl who was sprayed was shouting "Black lives matter!," when she was allegedly groped by a Trump supporter, according to a video of the incident.
At one point, she tries to strike the man through the crowd, when another man wearing glasses and a hat with Trump's, "make America great again," slogan appears to fire pepper spray.
The girl was sprayed directly in the face, and another 19-year-old woman got second-hand spray, according to a press release by the Janesville Police Department.
In another video, the pepper-sprayed girl tries to leave the area and is called a “g------- communist n----- lover."
Janesville Police Sgt. Aaron Ellis said that authorities are trying to identify the man who used the pepper spray. He could be charged with illegal discharge of pepper spray, reports AP.
Ellis added that the girl could be charged for hitting the first man, who was identified as Dan Crandall by the Wisconsin State Journal.
"I didn’t touch her," Crandall told the Wisconsin State Journal. "A lot of people around her started chanting, 'all lives matter' and she got upset. She started to challenge why I was at the Trump rally since I was a grown man. I told her I was at the Trump rally because I was a grown man and I cared about my country."
According to Ellis, the girl said she did hit the man who allegedly groped her, and that the second man pepper-sprayed her. The girl and the 19-year-old female were treated at a local hospital.
