San Jose police say the person seen in video tackling a man in a red shirt is one of the three juveniles arrested for assaulting Trump supporters at Thursday's rally. The arrests involved not only that attack, but an assault on another Trump supporter as he was walking down the sidewalk.

Two were arrested for assault with a deadly weapon, a felony; the other for misdemeanor battery.

This follows the arrests of four other people who police identified on Tuesday, and today's release of a photo of a suspect investigators need help identifying.

California Republican Party vice-chairman Harmeet Dhillon was at the Trump rally, even had her photo taken with Trump himself.

"I think the police are taking it seriously now as a result of national scorn and pressure," Dhillon said.

She's still outraged that officers did nothing as people were getting harassed and hurt. As for the investigation, she'd like to see more.

"They are not to me yet going after the ring leaders of this. I have not heard of aggressive subpoenas to organizers or anything like that," Dhillon said.

Log cabin Republicans held a news conference condemning the assaults. Juan Hernandez says he was sucker-punched repeatedly.

"One of them hit me in my nose and the blood just started pouring out," said assault victim Juan Hernandez. "I don't want that to be the norm. Like, I don't want that to be okay that this sets up the precedent that that's OK."

Police say they expect to make more arrests.
