ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – Albuquerque police said it’s taking some time, but the department plans to make more arrests from Tuesday’s protest turned violent.

According to APD, officers are still receiving tips and videos from the night of the Donald Trump protests. Six officers suffered significant injuries to the face, nose, arms and legs after being pummeled with fist-sized rocks. They were treated by rescue personnel on scene.

Police arrested four people that night and promised more arrests would be made. The day following the protest, Chief Police Gorden Eden, released photos identifying a couple of the people they say turned violent during Tuesday’s Trump rally.

Today, they’re not backing down.

“We have multiple credible witnesses that were on scene that night and we have hard fact evidence that we’re going through so it does take some time,” Officer Simon Drobik said.

And according to police, arrests are coming soon.

“Beginning on Tuesday we’re going to start the whole process by getting these individuals into court and bringing them to justice,” he said.

The city is offering a $10,000 reward for anyone who can identify anyone else who committed crimes that night.
