The Boise Police department is reviewing multiple sources of video footage from the protests at and near City Hall Tuesday night, including videos posted on social media. At this time, there are multiple investigations underway with several charges possible, most of which are misdemeanors. BPD is also aware of videos on social media where the people involved have not reported the incidents to police. For the best chance of a successful prosecution, we encourage anyone who believes they were a victim of a crime during Tuesday night’s protest to contact police and file a report. Detectives are currently looking into reports involving people on both sides of the protests and charges are possible for criminal acts committed by individuals across the spectrum from all sides of the protest. BPD Investigators are working to identify a number of individuals who may have knowledge of specific incidents occurring during Tuesday night’s event.
As part of the ongoing investigations, detectives are asking for assistance in identifying subjects from two specific incidents at this time. Officers on scene began investigations and interviews Tuesday and detectives conducted additional follow up and interviews on Wednesday. If you have any information about the following subjects, please contact police using the instructions below.
