New Jersey law enforcement arrested 19-year-old Ryan M. Salvagno Wednesday for assaulting an 81-year-old man in a supermarket Monday over his MAGA hat.
According to Somerset prosecutors, the elderly Franklin Township resident was at a ShopRite on Elizabeth Avenue Monday afternoon when Ryan Salvagno confronted him about his MAGA hat.
“As the victim turned to walk away, defendant Salvagno was able to grab the victim’s hat and the two struggled for sole possession of the hat,” Prosecutor Michael H. Robertson said.
“Salvagno then took the victim by the arm and threw him to the ground, tipping over the victim’s cart of groceries and ultimately throwing the hat to the side,” the prosecutor said in a statement.
Salvagno was charged with disorderly persons offenses of assault and harassment. Police did not disclose how they identified the alleged attacker, reported NJ.com.
Prosecutors said that the elderly Trump supporter was left with minor injuries and declined treatment.
Trump supporters are harassed, physically assaulted, stalked, verbally abused, threatened and deplatformed on a DAILY BASIS now and there is a virtual media blackout on the violence.
Meanwhile, the media is reporting on fake hate hoax crimes concocted by deranged leftists.
