Man in ‘Trump Pence' Shirt Slugs Subway Rider During Argument Over InfoWars Stickers

Police are looking for a man in a "Trump Pence" shirt after sources said he punched a 52-year-old who asked him to stop putting up stickers for conspiracy theorist Alex Jones' website InfoWars in a subway car. 

Police said the attacker punched the 52-year-old man in the face while the pair were on a Brooklyn-bound 4 train near the Brooklyn Bridge / City Hall station in lower Manhattan on June 4.

Sources said the two were arguing before the attack over the stickers the media empire owned by for Jones, who has claimed among other things that the 2012 massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School was a hoax. 

At some point during the argument, sources said the attacker called the 52-year-old a "coward" and slugged him. Afterward, the man got off the train and got on a Brooklyn-bound J train.

Anyone with information about the attack should call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS.
