The FBI is seeking help from the public to identify individuals involved in a security breach at the U.S. Capitol on Wednesday. 

The agency tweeted a statement early Thursday saying it was seeking information that will assist in "identifying individuals who are actively instigating violence."

"If you have witnessed unlawful violent actions, we urge you to submit any information, photos, or videos that could be relevant at fbi.gov/USCapitol," the FBI wrote.

During the chaos, these individuals broke windows, entered both the Senate and House chambers and entered into the offices of lawmakers, including House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif.

Robert J. Contee III, the city's top cop, said during a press conference late Wednesday there have been at least 52 arrests – 47 because of curfew violations.
