Washington, DC – The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) released 11 additional videos of the Capitol riot and asked the public for help in identifying suspects who were “seen forcefully attacking law enforcement officers” that day (video below).
A statement released by the FBI on July 6 said that more than 500 rioters have so far been arrested, with more than 100 of them charged with having assaulted police officers.
However, the FBI said some of the most violent offenders have not yet been identified.
The arrests that have been made thus far were done with the assistance of hundreds of thousands of tips from the public, according to the FBI statement.
“As we mark six months since the violence at our nation’s Capitol, we continue to encourage the public to send tips to the FBI,” FBI Washington Field Office Assistant Director Steven M. D’Antuono said.
“As we have seen with dozens of cases so far, the tips matter,” D’Antuono said. “Tipsters should rest assured that the FBI is working diligently behind the scenes to follow all investigative leads to verify tips from the public and bring these criminals to justice.”
“To date, the FBI has arrested more than 500 individuals for criminal activity on January 6,” he continued. “The public has provided tremendous assistance to this investigation, and we are asking for additional help to identify other individuals for their role in the violence at the U.S. Capitol.”
The FBI has asked the public to contact its agency if they recognized any of the people in the newly-released videos at 1-800-225-5324 or online here.
