Two Connecticut Residents Arrested In Capitol Mob Violence

Two people who listed their homes as being in Connecticut were among those arrested at the U.S. Capitol yesterday. Mauricio Mendez and Victoria Bergeson were both charged with unlawful entry and violating a curfew. They were arrested in the same area at the Capitol.

Meanwhile, U.S. Attorney for Connecticut John Durham today issued a statement urging people with information related to the incident at the capitol to use an FBI tips web site.

Matt Dwyer is a producer for Where We Live and a reporter and midday host for Connecticut Public's news department.
