Police say if you have any additional information, you are asked to call investigators.

In a statement, Officer Charley Davidson says police have always supported individual's right to demonstrate lawfully and has previously worked alongside other demonstration leaders to ensure their groups were able to share their views safely. However, the individuals protesting the past few days refuse to demonstrate lawfully.

Wichita Police will continue to monitor any protest activities throughout the city. Illegal activity will not be tolerated, and criminals will be arrested and held accountable for their actions to the fullest extent of the law.
