HOUSTON – The FBI has released 11 new videos of suspects in violent assaults on federal officers during the riots at the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6 in an effort to get the public’s help to identify them.

The 11 new videos, released by the agency’s Washington Field Office, depict suspects seen forcefully attacking law enforcement officers, according to the FBI’s news release on Tuesday.

The FBI said the search has been a priority for the FBI and “hundreds of thousands of tips” have led to the arrest of more than 500 people who they say took part in the riots.

“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.

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.”
