Alvin Gary Shaw, a 33 year old man has been arrested for attacking a number of Trump supporters attending a rally in Aliso Viejo, California.
84 year old Donna Shaw said “He took his hand way back like he was going to punch me, and hit me right across the face. Broke my earrings off.”
The Orange County sheriff’s office confirmed Shaw was taken into custody on suspicion of elder abuse, assault with a deadly weapon and assault and battery.
He allegedly attacked 3 people in attendance and was armed with a knife that was found in a nearby bush.
Sgt. Dennis Breckner said “This could have been a very serious incident. In this case, this was just two groups that disagree, and while we support people and their using their First Amendment rights to put out their message, we prefer that that remain peaceful.”
