Fifty-nine officers have suffered a range of injuries as a result of Saturday’s violent riot in Seattle, according to the Seattle Police Department (SPD) Blotter.

Seattle Police declared a riot and arrested dozens of people on Saturday after a demonstration in the city’s Capitol Hill neighborhood — a protest aimed to stand in solidarity with Portland protesters — turned violent. The protest, which saw roughly 1,000 participants, began as a march but descended into a state of anarchy, as rioters set fires, vandalized property, hurled explosives, and assaulted police officers.

According to the SPD Blotter, rioters pelted officers with “explosives, rocks, bottles, and wood,” resulting in injuries ranging from “abrasions and bruising to burns and a torn meniscus.” Fifty-nine officers were injured as a result of the violence, and at least one was hospitalized.

The police department posted bodycam footage from the violent riot, showing assailants hurling objects, including explosives, at officers:
