A man handing out neo-Nazi leaflets on a university campus was punched in the face by a student, reports claim.
The man was said to distributing material at California Polytechc for what he claimed was the American Nazi Party.
The group has said Trump’s presidency is ‘going to be a real opportunity for people like white nationalists, acting intelligently, to build upon.’
The attack occurred after students reported that the material was being distributed on campus.
However, the man’s actions were protected by free speech laws so when he returned last Thursday students took things into their own hands.
A man punched him outside the Kennedy library at California Polytechnic before fleeing the scene and local police were called.
The university told Metro.co.uk: ‘Responding officers determined that the man’s actions were protected under the First Amendment as free speech and that no crimes were occurring. The man left shortly after.

‘Responding officers talked to the man who was hit, who declined to report a crime or provide his identity. With no crime reported, there was nothing for police to investigate further.’
As no crime was reported no details about either man were released.
