The man attacked by a group of black people spoke out on his assault, describing it as a traffic accident that quickly escalated in a brutal attack.
A viral video circulating the internet shows a group of black people punching and kicking 49-year-old David Wilcox. Bystanders watched Wilcox’s attack, cheering as two black men kicked Wilcox in the stomach and punched him in the face. (RELATED: Black Hillary Supporters Assault White Trump Supporter)
Wilcox explained that the attack started after another car pulled up next to him and sideswiped him, according to an interview with The Chicago Tribune.
When he stepped out of the car to exchange insurance information, a black man at the bus stop said, “Yeah that’s one of those white boy Trump supporters,” according to Wilcox.
The black people from the car started to attack him, Wilcox maintained.
“The next thing I know, the guy said, ‘Don’t worry about it, we’re going to beat his ass.’ And then punches were thrown and the next thing I know, I have five people on me and I fell to the ground. I was kicked in the head. They were in my car, stealing all my stuff, ” Wilcox said. “I tried to go the car, I got hit some more. I tried to get into a defensive stance to try and ward them off a little bit.”
Wilcox said that while he voted for Trump, no one who attacked him would have known that. He believed that the people who assaulted him were motivated by the onlooker’s taunts.
Wilcox said it seemed like the anti-Trump rhetoric came from the bystanders watching his attack. He filed a police report, but police have not been able to locate any suspects.
“Regardless of who said those statements, the department is taking this very seriously, and that type of divisive rhetoric is not acceptable,” Anthony Guglielmi, chief police spokesman, told The Chicago Tribune.
