Boy suffers injuries after vicious assault from woman
Police in Boulder, Colorado, are investigating the whereabouts of a woman who reportedly assaulted a 12-year-old boy for carrying a sign supporting President Donald Trump.
The incident took place on Monday around 2 pm, according to police.
The boy, whose identity is unknown, was riding his biking, carrying a pro-Trump sign when a woman riding a moped passed him before taking a u-turn to confront him.
The woman reportedly told the boy, "you want something to look at?" before punching him, according to Boulder police spokeswoman Shannon Aulabaugh.
The woman, who used her closed fist to punch the boy in his head, gave him several blows.
She also scratched the boy as he fell to the floor.
The president’s oldest son, Donald Trump Jr., tweeted about the Boulder incident saying:
“More Joe Biden voters terrorizing kids… this is becoming far too common of an occurrence. Sick.”

The boy said the woman also attempted to steal his Trump sign.
Police are now seeking a white woman in her twenties or thirties.
She was wearing blue jeans and a tan jacket at the time of the attack.
Her moped was colored blue or gray.
According to the boy, this isn't the first time he has been attacked for supporting President Donald Trump, but its the first time an adult attacked him, as Denver7 News reported.
"I like showing what I believe in," he said.
"I didn't want any conflict – I just wanted to show what I believe in."
The boy added he was afraid to show his support for Trump following the incident.
His father added that he wanted to press charges against the woman once she is identified by police.
