Police are seeking two suspects after a 15-year-old girl was allegedly sexually assaulted and pepper-sprayed outside of a rally Tuesday for Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump, according to an advisory from the Janesville, Wis., Police Department.
 
Police say one suspect “groped” the girl and the other pepper-sprayed her.

The 15-year-old girl got medical attention at a local hospital following the incident, according to police. A 19-year-old woman who received second-hand spray also received medical attention.
 
There were also six protesters arrested during the rally on charges of disorderly conduct, obstructing an officer and trespassing after refusing to leave the lobby, according to the Janesville Police Department.
 
The protesters were part of the group Showing Up for Racial Injustice, according to the advisory.
 
A protest had been planned in advance of the rally. The organizer of the protest said on the Facebook event page that the demonstration was meant to be peaceful and nonviolent.
