More reports of assaults and mob violence by anti-Trump protesters on Thursday evening continue to emerge from San Jose, where groups of men attacked Trump supporters emerging from a rally, even pursuing them to their cars in the parking lot.

CBS San Francisco reports that a police officer was assaulted during the violence before law enforcement regained control.

There were also numerous reports that police initially refrained from stopping violence against Trump supporters. From KPIX:

Protesters followed Trump supporters to their cars as they left the convention center. Around the corner and away from police protection on San Carlos Street, a mob mentality took over.

A young man wearing a “Build The Wall” T-shirt was assaulted by several young men. Fearing for the man’s safety, KPIX reporter Len Ramirez yelled at him to get away.

For several minutes, there was no police presence and protesters thumped Trump supporters’ cars in the parking garage as they tried to leave …

Another young man was chased down like prey. He ran until finding some police officers who stopped his attackers

Others corroborated that report, with footage from a parking garage nearby:

The Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders campaigns both condemned the violence. Supporters of both, particularly Sanders, were visible in the crowd of protesters outside the Trump event.
