More than two months after the violence, the agency said it has arrested more than 300 people, including more than 65 for assaulting police officers, but other suspects are still being sought.READ MORE: 2 Charged In Assault Of Capitol Police Officer Brian Sicknick, Who Later Died

“Speaking as a law enforcement officer—but also as an American citizen—it is alarming to watch these videos,” Steven M. D’Antuono, the assistant director in charge of the FBI’s Washington Field Office, said in a video release. “It’s the FBI’s job to identify, locate, and arrest these criminals. We have asked for your help in identifying others involved in violence at the Capitol, and you have delivered. We are coming to you again because we know someone out there somewhere will recognize these individuals.”
