As the Connecticut delegation was getting off a bus near the Xcel Center, a group of protesters broke free from authorities and attacked the delegates.
Connecticut delegate Rob Simmons told FOX 9 that a group of protesters came toward his delegation and tried to rip the credentials off their necks and sprayed them with a toxic substance.
The unknown substance burned their eyes and stained their clothes.
One 80-year-old member of the delegation had to be treated for injuries, and several other delegates had to rinse their eyes and clothing.
Simmons says the incident was scary and concerning, but it won’t stop his delegation from enjoying the RNC activities. He also said that the incident hasn’t soured his image of St. Paul.
Story from Gateway Pundit who also happened to be ON one of the buses that was attacked by anarchists today.
From the site: Anarchists in St. Paul attacked RNC buses today in route to the Excel Center.
The anarchists and Leftists knew when the buses would be heading to the convention and were waiting for them.
