Man Wearing MAGA Hat in Russian Assaulted in Restroom
Authorities in California arrested a man in connection with an assault last month in which another man wearing a “Make America Great Again” hat written in the Russian language was attacked in the bathroom of a restaurant.
The Hermosa Beach Police Department said in a news release that the suspect, 32, was arrested Tuesday at his home in Winnetka, Calif., on suspicion of robbery and battery with a serious injury.
The attack took place around 6:40 p.m. on Sept. 2 inside a restaurant in downtown Hermosa Beach.
The victim was wearing a red hat with white Russian writing on it that translated to “Make America Great Again,” according to police.
Delgado allegedly approached the victim as he was using the restroom at the restaurant.
“The suspect approached the victim in the restroom and questioned him about the meaning of the hat, after which the suspect repeatedly punched the victim in the face causing the victim to fall to the ground,” police said in a news release.
After the victim fell to the ground, police said Delgado continued to punch the victim before eventually stealing his hat and fleeing from the restaurant.
Authorities said they used “investigative resources and surveillance footage” in order to identify the suspect and arrest him at his home without incident.
The suspect is currently being held on $100,000 bail, according to police.
