WATCH: Antifa Maces Dog During San Diego Demonstration

Video posted to social media shows an an apparent antifa activist using pepper spray on a man and his dog in San Diego on Saturday.

The moment: About 100 supporters of President Donald Trump and 100 counterprotesters faced off on the city’s Pacific Beach boardwalk during the afternoon.

  • Most of the counterprotesters, who were anti-fascists and Black Lives Matter supporters, wore antifa-style black bloc, all black clothing and face coverings.
  • Others wore “antifa” T-shirts and hats.

At one point, a man walking his dog approached a group of the counterprotesters who were waving an antifa flag.

  • When the dog began barking, one black-clad member of the antifa group hit both the animal and the man with a cloud of what appeared to be pepper spray.

The end: The anti-fascists and other counterprotesters gathered on the boardwalk to counter a pro-Trump “Patriot March” planned for 2 p.m.

  • Dozens of police officers in riot gear separated the clashing groups and later broke up the gathering with pepper balls.
  • Officers were hit with rocks, bottles and eggs, police said, and the crowd directed pepper spray at them.

The march had been scheduled long before pro-Trump protesters stormed the U.S. Capitol on Wednesday.
