Two Delaware women have been indicted on hate-crime and theft charges related to a MAGA cap being taken outside a Democratic National Convention event in Wilmington.
The women, Olivia Winslow and Camryn Amy, both 21, were indicted Tuesday by a grand jury on charges of second-degree robbery, second-degree conspiracy, endangering the welfare of a child, third-degree assault, attempted third-degree assault, offensive touching and felony hate crimes, according to Delaware Online.
The Aug. 20 incident was recorded on what became a viral video that appears to show the women tearing up Trump signs and snatching a MAGA hat from the ground near the site of Democrat presidential nominee Joe Biden’s acceptance speech.
The video also appears to show a confrontation between the women and adults coming to the defense of a 7-year-old President Trump supporter.
Outside the DNC Convention tonight, radical leftists attacked a 7 year old boy.
Because he was simply showing his support for President @realDonaldTrump.

When one of the women appears to grab the Trump cap, the child is heard saying,“That’s somebody else’s hat.”
The video appears to show one of the women hit a man who attempted to help the child and his mother get back the red “Make America Great Again” ball cap and the other suspect attack the mom.
