On Monday, a protester at Ohio State University was tackled down a flight of stairs during an anti-Donald Trump demonstration, reported ABC 13.

The Lantern, Ohio State’s student paper, captured video that showed the man getting aggressively shoved from behind inside the Ohio State Union.

Before the attack, the protesters held a bullhorn and addressed the crowd and said, "We don't have to compromise.” Simultaneously, a man sprinted down the stairs behind him and shouted, "You idiot!"

Although some protesters tried to stop the man before he could reach the protester, he dove forward, smashing into the back of the protester, who then went toppling down the stairs onto the ground.  

Immediately after, a man in a Guy Fawkes mask jumped forward to hit the attacker and police officers moved in to take the tackler away.

The crowd chanted "shame" as police led the suspect away. Neither the suspect nor the victim has been identified.
