Probe ongoing into pepper spray incident at Trump rally
JANESVILLE, Wis. - Police say they're still looking for the man suspected of pepper spraying a 15-year-old girl during an altercation at a rally for Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump in Wisconsin.
Janesville police said early Thursday that investigators had located the suspect, but police Lt. Keith Lawver later said that wasn't the case. Lawver says police are still seeking the man.
Lawver says investigators have talked to the man accused of groping the girl who was pepper-sprayed at the crowded rally outside a Janesville hotel and convention center Tuesday.
He says the investigation continues and police aren't ready to give the case to prosecutors.
A 19-year-old woman standing near the girl at the rally was also treated for pepper spray, though she wasn't directly hit.
