ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) — Supporters and opponents of Donald Trump clashed outside City Hall, and five people, including two little girls, were pepper-sprayed by a demonstrator during the heated confrontation, police said.
No serious injuries and no arrests were reported in Tuesday’s clash as about 50 people confronted each other in the Orange County community.
Backers waving U.S. flags and pro-Trump signs were met by opponents and a shouting match began before a City Council meeting where an anti-Trump resolution had been proposed that the council eventually chose to take no action on.
At one point, an opponent unleashed a hand-held pepper-spray device on the pro-Trump crowd.
Five people, including two girls ages 8 and 11, were exposed to the eye-stinging spray, police Sgt. Daron Wyatt said. Three were treated at the scene by paramedics.
The man fled, but police were looking for him, Wyatt said.
This behavior has to stop.
AMEN...seems anti-Trump folks want anarchy......this guy's picture is pretty clear...he should be easy to catch...but liberal commie Cali will just let him go. I hope those 2 little girls are OK! GO TRUMP! America and Americans 1st!
A vote for Trump is a vote for Hillary. Thanks for nothing!
What a pathetically stupid remark....
IDIOTS LIKE YOU NEVER HAVE MUCH TO SAY AND NOTHING THAT ANYONE ELSE GIVES A CRAP ABOUT! INDIANA for TRUMP!
This is what Trump and all of his supporters are calling "Unification", pure hog wash. I predict that if Trump is nominated we will have riots all around our country. Does the Republican Party really need this kind of representation.
I'm not in anyway condoning the lefts methods only saying we need no more division in our country, it is bad enough.
So why the hell are you blaming the victims ?
As usual Ray, you have your head up your rear.
And your head is up Trumps.
Get out of this discussion you f#$%#king troll ass bitch. @Ray
You have a vocabulary of a Democrat, can you speak without vulgarity?
To Ray Hause
No more division in the country...................................?

Become a Democrat and support everything they do!
Because if you stand up for your rights and right and wrong, there is going to be division!
Do you know how to do anything besides spam? Grow up whiner
