Two women in Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden’s home state of Delaware have been indicted on hate crime charges after they allegedly stole a “Make America Great Again” hat from a child and assaulted him and his mother.
In a video that went viral on social media last month during the Democratic National Convention, the two women stole signs from supporters of President Donald Trump outside of where Biden spoke in Wilmington.
The women in the video tore up the signs and the stole the hat from the 7-year-old boy, Fox News reported.
The child pleaded for the return of his hat, but the women cursed at him. One of them was also recorded appearing to strike at his mother.
The boy pleaded with his mother to “call 911.”
One of the women eventually threw the hat over a fence.
The incident was shared on Twitter by the Students for Trump group and later by Donald Trump Jr.:
Last night, Joe Biden supporters viciously attacked Riley, a 7 year-old @realDonaldTrump fan.
Joe Biden supporters stole Riley’s hat, ripped up his sign & made him cry.
Watch. It’s on video. This is sick.

Students for Trump later reported the child’s name is Riley and he received a call from the White House.
The Washington Examiner reported that Trump sent Riley a new hat, which he autographed for the boy.
The women on the video were identified by police and arrested, The News Journal reported.
