WILMINGTON, De. — Two women in Wilmington, Delaware have been charged in connection to a viral video that appears to show them snatching a MAGA hat from a child and ripping up signs belonging to supporters of President Donald Trump.

The alleged incident happened just after 8 p.m. Thursday in the 600 block of South Justison Street, near where Joe Biden made his DNC acceptance speech.

Based off the video, police identified the suspects as Olivia Winslow and Camryn Amy, both 21.

Winslow was arrested the next day on one count each of second degree robbery and conspiracy, and endangering the welfare of a child. She's since been released on her own recognizance.

The following day police took Amy into custody, and charged her with first degree robbery, second degree conspiracy, two counts of offensive touching, and endangering the welfare of a child.

Police say she's being held at the Delores J. Baylor Women’s Correctional Institute on $45,000 secured bond.
