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

Police officials say investigators made the latest arrest Saturday. Police say Zachary Campbell was arrested on charges of riot and resisting arrest. The 32-year-old was in custody, and it wasn’t clear if he had a lawyer.

Police earlier arrested a 36-year-old woman and another man in connection with the attack. Seven people were seen on amateur video pushing, kicking and punching two officers on the Brooklyn Bridge. Others 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.
