Two women who stole a MAGA hat from a 7-year old boy outside the DNC Convention in Wilmington, Delaware, were charged with a hate crime, robbery and conspiracy, among other charges. The pair of friends, Olivia Winslow and Camryn Amy, were indicted by a New Castle County grand jury which charged them with 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.
The attack was caught on camera as the young boy and his parents waited for dinner outside arena where the DNC Convention was held in Wilmington on August 20th.
The women became incensed at the sight of the boy’s Trump hat. They began yelling at the little boy and Winslow stole his hat when it fell on the ground and refused to give it back.
