Man Arrested After Beating Elderly Man Wearing “MAGA” Hat

A Red Bluff man was not very neighborly when confronted with someone with whom he disagreed with politically, according to police. On Friday afternoon a little after 4 O’clock a 77-year-old man was beaten at the Red Bluff Post Office on Walnut Street. Officers say it was simply because he was wearing a Donald Trump “Make America Great Again” hat. The suspect fled, but officers later arrested 26-year-old Daniel Gomez-Martinez and charged him with battery and elder abuse.
