A man claims he was attacked by a group of teens because he was wearing a “Make America Great Again” hat.
It happened at 6:50 p.m. Tuesday on Canal Street near Greene Street in Manhattan.
Jahangir Turan, 42, claims he was walking down the street when he was passed through a group of 15-18 people. He was wearing a MAGA hat.
“One girl flipped my hat, and then within five, eight seconds, I got pushed from the back and my face hit the scaffolding pole,” Turan said.
Turan said his attackers said were “chanting anti-Trump stuff.”
He crossed the street and called the police.
The attack left with him a fracture in his cheekbone.
Police say he refused medical attention at the scene.
Turan hopes the NYPD will be able to make an arrest.
