A family of seven, which included four children, were pepper-sprayed by violent rioters on Sunday while participating in a “Jews For Trump” rally in New York City.

A spokesperson for the New York Police Department said 11 people were taken into custody after the rally descended into chaos and violence Sunday afternoon. Six people were charged with disorderly conduct, obstruction of government administration, and harassment. A seventh person was charged with assaulting a police officer and resisting arrest, the NYPD said Monday.

A convoy of hundreds of cars draped with American flags and “Trump 2020” banners rolled slowly through Manhattan and Brooklyn on Sunday afternoon. The caravan traveled from Coney Island to the Trump Tower in Manhattan before heading to a rally in a Brooklyn park.

At one point, fights broke out between supporters and opponents of the president.

A member of the family that was pepper-sprayed told Fox News that the attack was unprovoked and happened while the family was driving down Fifth Avenue with the car windows down and Trump flags displayed.

The man wished to remain anonymous, fearing his family could be targeted. He said a car pulled up next to them and unleashed pepper spray into their vehicle.

“Immediately the kids started crying and screaming and I jumped out of the car after I was peppered [sic] sprayed as well,” the man said.

The man said the attacker chased him down the street trying to pepper-spray him again. His mother flagged down an officer and the suspect was arrested.

The man said that the kids “are now left traumatized” and still “coughing from” the residue.

The encounter was one of many violent confrontations between the rally’s participants and protesters. The Jewish Telegraph Agency reported that a convoy was to take place in several Orthodox Jewish communities ahead of a planned event in Brooklyn’s Marine Park. The event was organized by Boris Epshteyn, an adviser to the Trump campaign and co-chair of Jewish Voices for Trump.

‘Unlawful Assembly’

Multiple disturbing video clips of the convoy posted on @NYScanner show crowds not taking too kindly to rows of vehicles with hoisted “Trump 2020” flags.

In one video, a man can be seen throwing eggs at the convoy in Brooklyn.

In another video, pedestrians can be seen throwing rocks at vehicles displaying a Trump flag.

The hostility lingered throughout the day. In multiple clips, people can be heard yelling expletives at the “Jews For Trump” participants.

One man on a bike appears to be so angry that the “pro-Trump” vehicles have congested traffic on the Brooklyn Bridge that he resorts to punching a window.

Later, a scuffle broke out between the pro- and anti-Trump crowd in the middle of a street. Masked protesters could be seen in one clip converging on a vehicle doused in red paint as “YMCA” is blasting in the background.

“Go home! We don’t you here!” somebody in the crowd shouts.

“Go back to Long Island!” another person shouts.

A video posted on Twitter shows a pro-Trump caravan led by former NYC Mayor Rudy Giuliani being pelted with eggs.

In the clip, Giuliani can be seen rolling down the window from the passenger side of a vehicle. He briefly speaks to a police sergeant before the car drives away. Protesters can be heard shouting expletives at the former mayor.

Several police officers can be seen struggling to separate the opposing sides before slapping handcuffs on a bicyclist.

The fight between the opposing sides continued as people brawled between a traffic divider. In the confusion, a masked protester appears to strike a Trump supporter on the head. As the masked culprit tries to run away, another person trips him, causing him to fall and slam his head into the ground.

Police later declared the gathering an unlawful assembly. One of the people arrested on Sunday, a 36-year-old homeless man identified as Devan Harris, is accused of throwing eggs in two police officers’ faces and then resisting arrest, the NYPD said.

Chief Terence Monahan said later Sunday that NYPD detectives are investigating the rock-throwing incident.

  1. My father served in WWII, my grandfather in World War One. My oldest son served in the
    Army during the flooding of New Orleans, one
    of my grandsons served 2 terms in Afghanistan! Everyone but my grandfather and father are still living. This may sound like I didn’t love them, however you couldn’t be more wrong. It is because I loved them so deeply I make this statement. I am truly thankful they are with Jesus and not living in
    this today!! It would kill them to know what their families are going through!!!

  2. I would hope that law enforcement and the courts will prosecute these people to the full extent of the law. This is the only way these idiots will understand there are laws and breaking the law(s) has consequences

  3. Why can’t police just handle this the old fashioned way?

    Individually grab a rioter, drag them down a dark alley, beat the holy hell out of them, and leave them.

    Oh, get their ID, so you can track their recidivism……..if any.

  4. What Trump supporters need to do is prepare for the attacks that will be perpetrated against them by the communist/trash left, is by having close to them, in an undetectable way, a
    large assembly of supporters who are non-conspicuously armed individuals who are of the Pro -Trump supporters who will beat the crap out of and seriously cripple the anti-Christ, pro-Biden, communist negroes and jerk liberals. stop taking the abuse that the jerk radical left is dishing out. Punish them.

  5. THIS LIBERALS ARE JUST OUT AND OUT CRAZY. ITS HOW DARE WE HAVE A THOUGHT DIFFERENT THEN THEIRS.——- THAT KIND OF THINKING IS COMMUNISM AND WE WON’T TOLERATE THAT HERE IN OUR COUNTRY. THEY HAVE BECOME BULLIES AND NEED A HARD SMACK DOWN TO REALITY IN OUR COUNTRY.

  6. You can see how criminals are incensed about Giuliani ruining crime for their families and forebearers. Still pissed off after all those years.
    I am always impressed by those who ‘cherish America’s children’. Uh….NOT these butt heads.

  7. I guess I should realize that no matter how much I hope that the progressives will act like responsible adults that they won’t. That would mean they would allow others to have their own beliefs and not be punished for them. That would mean that they wouldn’t throw fits when they don’t get their way all the time or that not everyone agrees with them. That would mean that they would not destroy the property of others; they would try to change things in accordance with the law. They wouldn’t jump to conclusions about what has happened before seeing proof of the incident. I guess the makkind has progressed backward instead of forward.

  8. This us all to very, very sad for this Country, and all the people who voted for Bixen and Kamala, are the people who are easily led around by their noses, I hope they lije shharibg there hard worked for paychecks, and sharring them with people who are not even in this Country legally, and I hope they enjoy being told what they can and cannot like, I how tgey like being told what they can believe in, what they want, not being able to vote or have there own voice, being told what music they can listen to, what religeon they can pray for, and all the other freedoms they have enjoyed in this Country U truely hope they don’t miss them to much.
