4 charged in beating of man as others yell anti-Trump words Add to ...

Chicago police say four people have been charged in the videotaped beating of a man as bystanders yelled “Don’t vote Trump.”

Authorities say 26-year-old Julian Christian, 21-year-old Rajane Lewis, 20-year-old Dejuan Collins and a 17-year-old girl who wasn’t identified were each charged with vehicular hijacking in the Nov. 9 incident. Christian is from Broadview, Illinois, and Lewis and Collins are from Chicago.

Forty-nine-year-old David Wilcox says he was attacked after his car was scraped by another car. He says he was beaten after parking and asking the other driver if he had insurance. Someone drove off with Wilcox’s car during the attack, which occurred on Chicago’s West Side.

Wilcox says he did vote for President-elect Donald Trump, but no one in the crowd knew that.
