The victim was passing out information about the conservative student group when he was approached by two angry men. After a verbal altercation ensued, he pulled out his phone to begin filming.
“One of the two men slapped the phone out of the victim’s hand and proceeded to knock over the table, the victim further alleged. While he and the suspect struggled for the phone, the suspect punched the victim several times, causing injury to the victim’s eye and nose, the alert said,” the Daily Californian reports.
Kirk confirmed to The Gateway Pundit that the student reported the assault to the police.
