EAST WINDSOR, Conn. — Officials in two Connecticut towns are investigating a video depicting people dressed in Ku Klux Klan-like outfits.

East Windsor police said Monday they’re looking into a complaint about a video circulated online depicting “a couple of people within a gathering” wearing a white robe and hood resembling those worn by the hate group.

Another person in the video is wearing a “Make American Great Again” hat and people are seen waving a Donald Trump flag.

The department says it’s weighing criminal trespassing charges and the video has been taken down.

Police in nearby Stafford are also investigating because the person who posted the video apparently lives in that town, which is northeast of Hartford.

Stafford First Selectman Anthony Frassinelli, a Democrat, has denounced the video as “disturbing and disgusting.”

He says after meeting with police and party attendees, he’s convinced the party didn’t occur in Stafford, but that at least one resident attended.
