DC Police report 68 arrests made

WASHINGTON — Police in Washington DC announced on Thursday that 68 arrests have been made after violence broke out at the US Capitol. Of those 68, police said only one was a DC resident.


Current acting Attorney General Jeffrey Rosen said that charges for some of those protesters will be charged as soon as today.

Yesterday our Nation watched in disbelief as a mob breached the Capitol Building and required federal and local law enforcement to help restore order. The Department of Justice is committed to ensuring that those responsible for this attack on our Government and the rule of law face the full consequences of their actions under the law. Our criminal prosecutors have been working throughout the night with special agents and investigators from the US Capitol Police, FBI, ATF, Metropolitan Police Department and the public to gather the evidence, identify perpetrators, and charge federal crimes where warranted. Some participants in yesterday’s violence will be charged today, and will continue to methodically assess evidence, charge crimes and make arrests in the coming days and weeks to ensure that those responsible are held accountable under the law.
