(1/10)

New information and video footage was released Thursday as the FBI continues its quest to find suspects involved in the deadly Jan. 6 riot at the U.S. Capitol.

Now the search is underway for the 10 “most violent” offenders yet to be identified.

“The FBI is asking for the public’s help in identifying 10 individuals suspected of being involved in some of the most violent attacks on officers who were protecting the U.S. Capitol and our democratic process on Jan. 6,” said Steven M. D’Antuono, assistant director in charge of the FBI’s Washington Field Office. “These individuals are seen on video committing egregious crimes against those who have devoted their lives to protecting the American people.”

According to the FBI, 300 people involved with the riot have been arrested, and of those, 65 were arrested for assaulting law enforcement officers.

The public is asked to call 1-800-CALL-FBI or submit a tip online at tips.fbi.gov if they have information. Please reference the AFO number when calling or submitting information online. To view photos of additional individuals the FBI is seeking to identify, visit fbi.gov/capitolviolence.
