Couple Arrested for Attacking Trump Supporter on Date Night With His Wife
Luke Lenzner 'sucker punched' after peaceful evening with wife over his MAGA hat
A pair of violent thugs has been arrested for attacking a Trump supporter, who says he was "sucker-punched" during a peaceful date night with his wife because he was wearing a MAGA hat, according to reports.
A man and woman have been charged for the vicious attack that left the victim with a bloody and nose and cuts and bruises all over his face.
Luke Lenzner says he was set upon by the couple outside a Portland, Oregon bar in the early hours of Saturday morning.
Lenzner was attacked while wearing his cap with President Donald Trump's "Make America Great Again" 2016 campaign slogan.
Pictures show Lenzner in the red MAGA hat with cuts and bruises to his face.
Police say 22-year-old Leopold A. Hauser and 23-year-old Adebisi A. Okuneye were arrested and charged with third-degree assault following the incident.
Lenzner told FOX 12 he was "mobbed" outside the bar by people who "just circled me and my wife."
According to the Daily Mail, security footage shows the couple as they leave the bar.
Lenzner appears to point at his hat and say something to other patrons before the altercation.
Staff at the Growler's Taproom said they had told Lenzner and his wife they had stopped serving food.
After leaving Lenzner claims it was then he was attacked.
He said: "Yep, hitting me square on the face.
"Surrounding me, like literally surrounding me, pushing me.
"I'm just trying to get through, trying to stop the person from hitting me, from taking my hat, and then I get sucker-punched."
Lenzner says he has been left with bruising and cut to his arms and face.
Hauser and Okuneye are said to have fled before police arrived but Lenzner was able to give officers a license plate.
They were arrested a few blocks away and were due to be arraigned Monday.
Witnesses are said to have accused Lenzner of provoking the attack by pointing to his hat but police say Lenzner was not involved physically in the incident.
