Suspect wanted after crushing officer in Capitol doorway

Washington D.C. – The Washington Metropolitan Police Department are looking for a man accused of crushing an officer in a doorway as a violent mob forced their way into the U.S. Capitol January 6th.

Video shows Officer Daniel Hodges, his mouth bloodied, crying out as he is pinned between a sliding door and the door frame.

“At that point that’s where I was to support the defense,” Hodges recalled while speaking to CNN. “I ended up getting pinned there by the crowd, there was a guy ripping my mask off and he was able to rip away my baton and beat me with it.”

Hodges said the man who attacked him was “practically foaming at the mouth.” He said he finally managed to escape the situation after another officer cleared some space behind him and pulled him to the rear.
