• Seattle police release photos of 5 wanted in May Day violence


    SEATTLE - The Seattle Police Department on Wednesday released photos of five people wanted in connection with the vandalism and violence that broke out during planned May 1 protests.

    Police said they combed through hours of video to, as the department stated on its blog, "put faces to some of the crimes committed."

    Photos of the five -- multiple photos in some cases -- are available in the slideshow at left.

    • "Suspect 1" is wanted for smashing windows at Niketown.
    • "Suspect 2" is wanted for smashing windows at Niketown with a skateboard.
    • "Suspect 3" is wanted for assault after police said he threw something at officers.
    • "Suspect 4" threw a bottle at police and struck an officer in the head, police said.
    • "Suspect 5" is wanted for a hit-and-run attack in which he ran out of a crows and stomped on an officer's knee, police said.

    The department is still reviewing video and photos from May 1 to possibly identify other suspects.

    Anyone who recognizes the people in the photographs, or has photos or video of the violence, is asked to call 206-233-2666 or email MayDay2012@Seattle.gov.
