Several videos show the attack, one from up close and the other from a distance. However neither shows the initial attacks on the Trump supporter. Both videos pick up about the same time in the attack as the Trump supporter is checking the back of his head as he starts to flee the mob.
This video contains a longer version of the chase and confirms the claim the Trump supporter tried to escape by climbing on a firetruck.
San Jose Police Chief Eddie Garcia used a photo of the young victim in a SJPD Facebook post that promised on to seek justice for those attacked in Thursday’s anti-Trump riot. As of this posting the San Jose police have not responded to inquiries as to whether Seyfudin Mohamud had been questioned or arrested for his attack on the young Trump supporter. There are no media reports on whether Mohamud has been arrested.
Video of the victim before the attack shows him acting in a civil, non-confrontational manner as he engages an anti-Trump protester.
