Donald Trump supporters were mobbed and assaulted by protesters on Thursday night after a rally in San Jose, California.

San Jose Police Sgt. Enrique Garcia says that several protesters were arrested and one officer was assaulted by the left-wing crowd.

The violence broke out after the event when protesters cornered a woman wearing a “Trump” t-shirt. While waving the Mexican flag, the crowd took turns spitting on her, throwing eggs at her face, and hitting her with garbage.

Lan Hoang said anti-Trump protesters stole his “Make America Great Again” hat, and set it on fire as he was leaving the rally.

The 24-year-old said he saw “a lot” of Trump supporters get attacked on his walk back to the car after the rally.

Protesters also smashed the windows of cars in a nearby parking structure and surrounded and taunted an elderly couple, according to Steve Tong.

“It was unbelievable,” said Tong. “I’ve never seen anything like that in America before”

This wasn’t the first Trump rally in California to turn violent. About 20 people were arrested after an April speech by Trump in Costa Mesa, California, when members of the crowd damaged five police vehicles.
