The protests and rioting at a San Jose rally last week left a Latino Donald Trump supporter covered in blood.

Juan Hernandez said he he suffered a mild concussion and broken nose that left his clothes covered in blood when he was jumped by anti-Trump protesters leaving the California event.

“It was riots. Riots were happening everywhere, and the protesters were picking out supporters and sucker-punching them, taking them down,” he told Fox News’ Megyn Kelly on “The Kelly File,” Wednesday.

A friend of Hernandez who had her glasses ripped off asked police why they were not acting to stop the violence.

“The officer said ‘we were told to have a stand-down by the police chief and mayor,'” he said, adding that he believed it because as they walked around, they saw evidence of this. “We saw the cops just standing there.”

Hernandez accused the city’s mayor of being biased against Trump, and said the job of city officials, like the police chief is to protect its citizens.

As a Hispanic supporter of the presumptive Republican nominee, Hernandez said he has gotten a lot of criticism.

“Coming out as gay was really difficult,” he said. “But coming out as a Trump Republican supporter was far more difficult.”
