Just a week after violence broke out at a Donald Trump rally in Chicago, more violence at a rally in Tucson, AZ on Saturday has been caught on camera after what appears to be a Donald Trump supporter viciously punching and stomping on a protester.

Before the event started, protesters had blocked a highway leading to the Tucson Convention Centre.

The video shows two protesters, one with what appears to be a white KKK style hood on his head, being escorted out of the rally by security.

As one of the protesters makes their way up the stairs, a man all of a sudden unleashes a haymaker of a punch sending the protester to the ground. He then continues the attack, appearing to stomp on the victim.

Police, who were right behind the protesters, immediately arrest the man who provides no resistance.

Bryan Sanders, identified as the man who was attacked, told the Arizona Daily Star he was protesting Trump’s “fascism, his racism, his lies and his woman hating.”

“I had a sign that said ‘Trump is bad for America,’ and a guy grabbed the sign as I was being escorted out of the building and sucker punched me.”

32-year-old Tony Pettway has been charged with assault with injury, Tucson Police Sgt. Kimberly Bay told the Huffington Post.
