Minnesota students taking part in the national gun control walkouts on Wednesday allegedly assaulted another student carrying a Trump flag.

According to CBS, the incident occurred outside of Southwest High School and Minneapolis Police are currently investigating the incident as an assault.

Per CBS, two students taking part in the protest allegedly noticed the male victim holding the flag while standing across the street from the school.

After the two approached the victim, six other protesters followed before stealing his flag, damaging his camera and “inflicting minor injuries.”

So far, no arrests have been made in connection to the incident.
