Two Richmond, Virginia, police officers were indicted Monday for two more charges of assault and battery stemming from their actions during May protests against racism and police brutality.
Mark Janowski, 34, and Christopher Brown, 28, were each charged with two more misdemeanor counts of assault and battery on Monday, according to the Richmond Times-Dispatch.
Richmond Commonwealth’s Attorney Colette McEachin has not disclosed any details about Janowski and Brown’s alleged crimes beyond that they took place around 3:45 a.m. on May 31, the second night of protests after George Floyd was killed in Minneapolis.
Richmond Police Officers Christopher Brown and Mark Janowski were hit with more charges Monday.
Richmond police deployed pepper spray on protesters at least twice that night, the Times-Dispatch previously reported.
Two Capitol Police officers hospitalized with leg injuries after being hit with a baseball bat and a beer bottle and at least two Confederate statues were graffitied.
It’s unclear if any protesters were injured.
