Riot Arrests

July 26, 2020

The Richmond Police Department arrested several individuals last night during a riot in the city.
They are:

·       James Kelley, 29, W/M, Richmond - Unlawful Assembly
·       Justin Killough, 26, W/M, Richmond – Unlawful Assembly
·       Stephen Loughman, 29, W/M, Richmond – Unlawful Assembly – Rioting with a Firearm
·       Wendell Lundy, 36, B/M, Hampton – Unlawful Assembly
·       Alton Rittenour, 26, W/M, Richmond – Unlawful Assembly
·       Justin Thompson, 28, W/M, Hopewell – Assault on a Law Enforcement Officer, Rioting

These six persons were part of a group of several hundred individuals who gathered in Monroe Park last night then moved as a loosely organized group through downtown, the VCU campus and the Fan – setting fires, breaking windows, tagging buildings and sidewalks, and blocking traffic.

Shortly after 11:00 p.m., an Unlawful Assembly was declared when the group attacked police officers outside RPD Headquarters with rocks, batteries and other objects and set fire to a city dump truck parked nearby.

Damage also occurred in and around the VCU campus, especially to buildings and businesses in the 800 block of West Grace Street.
