April 1, 2019

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — San Francisco police are searching for a man who wore a red “Make America Great Again” hat and used a sword to slash another man’s hand after an argument outside a roller-skating rink.

The San Francisco Chronicle reports that the attacker fled the scene Friday night outside the Church of 8 Wheels, leaving his victim bleeding profusely on the sidewalk.

Officer Robert Rueca tells the newspaper the man wearing the MAGA hat approached the victim and the two started arguing. He says the victim tried to grab the hat when the attacker pulled out a sword and cut him.

Sgt. Michael Andraychak on Monday confirmed the sword attack but declined to offer any details.

The victim, whose name was not released, was treated at a hospital for non-life-threatening injuries.
