San Jose police have identified four people who were arrested during last Thursday's Donald Trump rally.

The suspects have been identified as Ahmed Abdirahman, 19 of Santa Clara; Robert Trillo, 18 of San Jose; Antonio Fernandez, 19 of San Jose; and Michael Kitaigorodsky, 19 of San Jose. The four suspects were booked into the Santa Clara County Jail.

Abdirahman, Trillo, and Fernandez were arrested on felony charges of assault with a deadly weapon. Kitaigorodsky was arrested on a misdemeanor charge of failure to disperse.

Investigators used video evidence to help ID protesters who egged and attacked people who attended the event. Authorities are continuing to search for other people involved in violence at the Trump rally.

The San Jose Police Department was heavily criticized for its response to the Trump protests. Investigators say they're still following up on what happened last Thursday and more arrests are imminent. Police say they're reviewing witness statements and looking at all the video evidence that was collected.

Police were criticized for not doing more to intervene during the violence. Chief Eddie Garcia admitted there may not have been enough officers, but said the department achieved its goal of clearing the streets and making arrests. There were four arrests made that night.

That's why the department says its being aggressive in trying to find other people involved in the violence on June 2. They say they've identified some of the suspects in the videos, but need more help.
