BLOOMFIELD, N.J. (AP) — Police say a man was assaulted with a crowbar in the parking lot of a New Jersey restaurant for wearing a Donald Trump T-shirt.

Peter Yankowski says he was walking in Bloomfield last week wearing a T-shirt featuring the Republican presidential nominee standing in front of an American flag. He says a motorist questioned him about his "Trump for President" shirt and they exchanged insults. He says a scuffle occurred soon after.

Police say Yankowski was struck with a crowbar several times and was treated at the scene. They say the motorist fled before officers arrived.
