BOULDER, Colo. – Detectives with the Boulder Police Department released several new images and video of the March 6 University Hill neighborhood party-turned-riot Friday.
In total, 15 detectives and investigators from the Boulder Police Department, CU Boulder Police and the District Attorney’s Office are following up on more than 1,000 tips that have come in since March 7, an official said in a news release.
So far, seven people have been arrested and are facing charges for riot-related crimes. More arrests are still pending, the spokesperson said.
Three officers were injured after they were struck with rocks and bricks after they responded to the large gathering, according to police, and at least one car was damaged and flipped over.
