The viral video is disturbing. In it, a seven-year-old boy and his mom chase a woman and her friend to retrieve the boy’s Trump hat that she’s just stolen off his head. The hateful woman mocks and toys with the boy. It is by any definition a gratuitous act of hate.
Now, 21-year-old Olivia Winslow is arrested and charged by the Wilmington, Delaware police department for second-degree robbery, second-degree conspiracy, and endangering the welfare of a child.
The incident captured on tape happened outside the Chase Center in Wilmington on Thursday night, the last night of the Democratic National Convention.
Stealing and Robbing Trump Paraphernalia
A group of pro-Trump folks gathered outside of the venue where Biden was honored with the Democratic nomination.
Then came Winslow and her friend, who destroyed some of the group members’ signs and snatched the Trump hat away from the seven-year-old boy.
WDEL TV reports the perpetrator’s friend began to stomp on the boy’s hat. When the boy reached down to grab it, she stomped on his hand. Police are still looking for her.
The victim telling police the woman who’s yet to be arrested “forcefully” snatched a political sign from her hand while Winslow stole the MAGA hat and handed it to her alleged accomplice. Winslow is also accused of knocking a hat off an adult woman’s head. As the victim’s 7-year-old son went to retrieve the hat off the ground, the woman who’s yet to be arrested attempted to stomp on the hat, but stomped on the boy’s hand, according to statements in court records. The little boy wasn’t hurt, but did begin to cry, police said.
