LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - Two people who protested Donald Trump’s rally in Louisville have filed police reports, alleging they were punched and shoved by Trump’s supporters in the crowd.

One incident was captured on video by WLKY-TV inside the Kentucky International Convention Center, where the bombastic presidential candidate stopped his speech several times to shout at the protesters to “get out of here, out, out, out.”

In the video, a black woman can be seen being shoved by numerous white men in the crowd, screaming “scum” at her.

Louisville Metro Police Spokesman Dwight Mitchell said a 17-year-old also filed a complaint, alleging a woman tried to grab the protester’s sign and threw a punch.

Mitchell said police are investigating both incidents. Commonwealth’s Attorney Thomas B. Wine said in a news release that if felony charges are filed, his office will present them to a grand jury.
