Jun 2, 2020

At least one man who said he helped flip over a Salt Lake police police patrol car on Saturday has turned himself in.

21-year-old Connor Peebles has been arrested Sunday for investigation of criminal mischief, rioting and assault on a police officer.

 

During the riot in downtown Salt Lake City, several people were seen pushing an unoccupied Salt Lake police vehicle onto its side. The patrol car was later set on fire.

Salt Lake police have released surveillance photos of four men who detectives wanted to question in connection with the incident.

Anyone with information about others involved in damaging the patrol car or other incidents can call police at 801-799-3000.
