September 28, 2016 (El Cajon) - The El Cajon protests after Alfred Olango was gunned down by police continue peacefully, but things escalated a bit tonight after a man was attacked for wearing a Donald Trump hat and taunting protesters with racial slurs, ECM has learned.

A man wearing a red hat with the Trump slogan "Make America Great Again" was chased by protesters through the Broadway Village shopping center parking lot.  It is unknown if he was injured, but he did manage to make it to police officers and avoid further confrontation.

10 News has the video here.

ECM reporter Rebecca Williamson was filming the event when she was knocked down and had her camera bag stolen. 

Protesters are also blocking the on-ramp onto I-8.
