Reporter Keith Daniels and his unnamed cameraman were reporting an the anti-Trump protest when the mob surrounded them and ordered them to leave.
Baltimore police allowed the harassment to go on for a long while before halfheartedly intervening. Eventually, the police told the news crew to leave and gave them a ride out of the area for their safety. As they were being driven away a protester spat on the rear window of the police car. Police standing by did nothing.
Reporters have been attacked at several anti-Trump protests since the election on Tuesday.
