Hundreds of people gathered at the Janesville Conference Center on Tuesday afternoon for a chance to hear Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump speak.

Police said 1,000 people were inside for the rally. Many supporters with tickets were left outside when the room filled up. They were joined by protesters, and among the crowds, some chaos.

Janesville police said a 15-year-old girl was groped and pepper sprayed.

    If you watch the video on youtube, you’ll see that he wasn’t the one that did the alleged groping. Moreover, it’s unlikely there was any groping at all. His quick response to the punching situation is actually remarkable.

    I heard she was 19 not 15 and she punched an elderly man in the face prior to being sprayed. Even bystanders say nobody groped her. I say she git what she deserved and # felttheburn.
