Another suspect is seen on video and in pictures smashing a window with his skateboard.

A young man clad in all black can be seen in another video manhandling a police officer, said Sgt. Sean Whitcomb.

In all, 17 people were arrested after the "anti-capitalism" demonstration turned violent, with protesters pelting police with rocks and bottles and police firing flash-bang grenades and pepper spray.

Five people have been charged with felonies, another six charged with misdemeanors.

Police are asking for the public's help in identifying the suspects. Anyone with information is asked to contact the May Day 2013 Investigation Team at or call (206) 233-2666.
