ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WHEC) — News10NBC received new images of suspects who police said were allegedly involved in the violent protests on Saturday.

Again, everything started off peacefully, but Mayor Lovely Warren and Rochester Police Chief La’Ron Singletary said these people allegedly hijacked the protest.


Officers said these people allegedly set several city cars on fire at the Public Safety Building on Exchange Street.

News10NBC was also told the suspects allegedly destroyed city-owned property, including a construction trailer.

All of it happened following a peaceful protest at Martin Luther King Jr. Park on Saturday afternoon.

City officials claim most of the people involved in the looting and destruction are "outsiders.”

Currently, there are at least 11 suspects and police have already made at least 13 arrests. 

Anyone who can identify the individuals is asked to call 311 or Crime Stoppers at 585-423-9300.
