Who are Camryn Amy and Olivia Winslow?
Camryn Amy, 21, and Olivia Winslow, 21, were arrested in Delaware over the weekend for allegedly taking the MAGA hat of a 7-year-old boy who was wearing in support of President Donald Trump.
Amy and Winslow were outside the Democratic Convention where Democratic nominee Joe Biden gave his acceptance speech a day later.
In a viral video, the two are allegedly seen ripping up signs and picking a fight with adults nearby.

“Get your hat back, baby,” the mother is heard saying to her boy as they follow the suspects, demanding its return.
