71-Year Old Man Beaten by Looters, Jaw Broken While Defending Businesses in Kenosha Rioters
A 71-year old man was seriously injured by rioters and looters on Monday night while trying to protect a club and a small business in Kenosha, Wisconsin.
Robert Cobb, 71, suffered a broken jaw in two places when he was hit with a plastic bottle filled with concrete while defending The Mattress Shop and the local Danish Brotherhood lodge. The former would later be burned to the ground by rioters, who targeted several businesses in the area relentlessly.
The owners of The Mattress Shop, Pamela Moniz and her husband, Keith McCoy, describe Cobb trying to protect the building when he was assaulted by rioters. One looter pulled a gun on the senior citizen shortly before he was hit with the cement.
“He sprayed them in the face so they had to take their masks off for identification,” said Moniz. “Someone pulled a gun and another person yelled, ‘Don’t shoot this man, don’t shoot this man.”
Cobb was later seen bleeding heavily at the scene and incapacitated, with onlookers having to move him out of fear he would suffocate on his own blood.
The vicious assault of Cobb was caught on tape.

The attack on a community member who was merely trying to secure his own small business, is simply evil.
One Kenosha car dealership has suffered more than $1.5 million in damages since the beginning of the riots, with left-wing criminals attacking and burning the auto inventory the business had in its parking lot.
