A mom says she and her son were attacked by supposed Joe Biden supporters in Wilmington, Delaware after they attended what she described as a ‘peaceful protest’ against Biden.

Abbey Wigton, who says she was carrying a pro-Trump sign, and her 7-year-old son Riley Wigton, who was wearing a MAGA hat, were waiting to be seated at a restaurant when when two women, who Abbey claims are Biden supporters, allegedly began assaulting the pair, according to a statement from Abbey shared on Twitter.

“They ripped the sign from my arms and assaulted my seven year old son. The Joe Biden supporters laid hands on my child and ripped his ‘Make America Great Again’ hat from his head while cursing at him and pushing him over.”

As one of the alleged assaulters picks up the MAGA hat, Riley can be heard saying in the video “that’s somebody else’s hat.”

Riley appears to plead for the hat back, to which one of the women responds “your mom f***ing likes Trump” as the pair continue to walk away.

As Riley was “sobbing and screaming,” Abbey says she attempted to retrieve her son’s hat and claims she was repeatedly punched in the face. The video appears to show her friend attempt to retrieve the hat as well before also being hit.

Abbey says her attackers then threw the hat over a fence into a dirt filled construction site where she was unable to retrieve it. (RELATED: Here’s Everything You Missed From The Final Night Of The DNC)

One woman can be heard threatening Abbey’s friend, saying “we gonna knock you the f**k out,” before walking away. However, the video appears to show one of the women walking back toward Abbey and hit her in the face repeatedly before the video ends.

Abbey says this incident is proof as to why she will be voting for President Donald Trump this election and is calling on Joe Biden to apologize to her son for the attack.

The Daily Caller reached out to the Wilmington Police Department, which said it received a report regarding an “offensive touching.”

Wilmington Police later said they arrested 21-year-old Olivia Winslow and 21-year-old Camryn Amy in connection with the offensive touching and robbery investigation. Winslow has been charged with robbery in the second degree, conspiracy in the second degree and endangering the welfare of a child, while Amy has been charged with robbery in the first degree, conspiracy in the second degree, two counts of offensive touching and endangering the welfare of a child, according to police.

The investigation remains ongoing.
