15-Year-Old Girl Allegedly Sexually Assaulted, Pepper-Sprayed At Donald Trump Rally In Wisconsin

A 15-year-old girl was sexually assaulted before being pepper-sprayed in the face outside a Donald Trump rally in Janesville, Wisconsin on Tuesday, police said.

The teen, identified by local news outlets as a protester, was in a crowd of about 1,000 people gathered outside the Holiday Inn Express when she was allegedly groped by a man and pepper-sprayed by another person.

Videos of the incident showed the teen yelling at a man in the crowd.

“You fucking touched my chest!” she screamed.

“I never touched her,” responded a voice from the throng.

When the teen tried to throw a punch at someone in the crowd, another person sprayed an orange substance in her face.

Authorities said the unarmed teen and another woman who was hit by the pepper spray received medical attention after the incident.

“We are currently looking for two suspects, one for the sexual assault and one for the pepper spray,” police said in a statement.

Wisconsin State Journal reporter Molly Beck, who was covering the rally, said she was pepper-sprayed in the melee as well.

“There were a couple moments today at [Trump’s] Janesville rally that felt exactly like an episode of ‘Black Mirror,’” she wrote, referring to the unsettling dystopian British TV series.
