JANESVILLE, Wis. (AP) -- Police in Wisconsin say they've found the man suspected of pepper spraying a 15-year-old girl at a Donald Trump rally. Video on social media shows a girl at the Tuesday rally in Janesville accusing a man of touching her chest, then she punches or shoves someone in the crowd before another man pepper sprays her. Investigators say they've also talked to the alleged groper, and no charges have been filed.


The Janesville Police Department is asking for help to identify a person in connection to a possible assault at the Donald Trump rally in Janesville Tuesday.

A 15-year-old girl was pepper-sprayed outside the rally, where opponents and supporters of the Republican presidential front-runner clashed.

This is the latest confrontation to mar a Trump event.

Police say the girl told them she punched another man who groped her. They would like to interview that man also.

The girl and a 19-year-old woman who was standing next to her were taken to a hospital and treated.

The girl could face charges for punching the other man.

If you know the person in the photos, you are asked to call Janesville Police at (608) 755-3100.
