A poster on Twitter who identifies as a Black Muslim man claims to have been the person seen on news video chasing and tackling a young white male Trump supporter following a Trump rally in San Jose Thursday. Using the Twitter handle “Houdini @sizzle_seyf”, the man posted the news video and retweeted congratulations on his chasing and tackling the Trump supporter.
Here are the still images of anti-Trump Muslim “Houdini” chasing and tacking a Trump supporter leaving the rally in San Jose, California.
Before the Trump rally, Houdini had been posting about “My Ramadan.”
“#ramadanconfessions me and the homies would stain Super America and come to the masjid for iftar😂😂😂😂”
“Nigga trump be picking the wrong cities to go to fuckin clown 😂😂 smh #sanjose #fucktrump”
Houdini posted a couple selfie videos from the protest including this one in which he can seen wearing a black shirt pulled up around his neck as also seen in the ABC News video:

“My man @sizzle_seyf came thru w/ that chase down, straight hawked him.”
UPDATE: Video of the victim before the attack shows him acting in a civil, non-confrontational manner as he engages an anti-Trump protester.
The video was posted to YouTube by Breitbart News and shows the soon-to-be victim calmly speaking with an anti-Trump protester.
FURTHER UPDATE: Houdini @sizzle_seyf identified himself as “Seyfudin Mohamud” in a tweet from October 2011 captured by Google.
“Houdini on Twitter: “@MissMulvahill miss mulvahill its seyfudin …

Screen capture shows Houdini saying he was “coming home” to Minnesota over an image of a round trip plane reservation from San Francisco to Minneapolis-St. Paul.
Houdini was also photographed at Thursday’s riot jumping on the roof of a car.

“Protesters against Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump climb on a car outside a Trump campaign rally on Thursday, June 2, 2016, in San Jose, Calif. A group of protesters attacked Trump supporters who were leaving the candidate’s rally in San Jose on Thursday night. A dozen or more people were punched, at least one person was pelted with an egg and Trump hats grabbed from supporters were set on fire on the ground.”
