NEW YORK (AP) - The New York Police Department has made another arrest in an aggressive manhunt for suspects in an assault on two officers during a protest over the apparent chokehold death of Eric Garner.

Police officials say investigators made the arrest Friday while executing a search warrant. Police say Maria Garcia was arrested on charges of riot and resisting arrest. The 36-year-old was in custody and it wasn’t clear if she had a lawyer.

The arrest follows Thursday’s surrender of another one of the seven suspects seen on amateur video pushing, kicking and punching two officers on the Brooklyn Bridge. Five are still being sought.

It happened at the end of a massive march last week protesting a grand jury decision not to indict a police officer in Garner’s death.
