Police have conceded that a bench warrant for Wilt's arrest was "erroneously issued."

During the protest, a group entered the building and at least one person assaulted a police sergeant and police officer with a weapon, according to police. Demonstrators said police had used pepper spray and beat up protesters, WROC reported.

"While inside the building, at least one of the protesters assaulted a Rochester Police Sergeant and another Officer with a weapon and he was subsequently arrested and charged with assault," police said in the news release.

That man, identified as 26-year-old Jordan Hughes, was charged with two counts of second-degree assault.

Rochester Police said the injured sergeant and officer were transported to hospital for treatment, along with a third officer who was also injured in the incident.

Police in Rochester , N.Y., arrested 11 people and three officers were injured Friday night after racial justice protests turned violent, according to local Prude, a Black man, died March 30 of asphyxiation, with drug use a contributing factor, after police placed a "spit bag" over his head during his arrest a

A New York City police officer who shoved a protester to the pavement is arrested. Officer Vincent D'Andraia, 28, is the first NYPD officer to face criminal charges from the protests in response to the police killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis.

Deputies with the Monroe Country Sheriff's Department had arrested Wilt on Tuesday afternoon in Webster, a town near Rochester.

Rochester Police said during that arrest, it was discovered Wilt had an outstanding city court warrant for failing to appear before the court for a previous arrest in Rochester on September 12.

Officers served the warrant on Wilt and transferred him to the Monroe County Jail.

It prompted the arrival of demonstrators at the Public Safety Building, who said Wilt was being held illegally, according to the local news station.

Early Wednesday, Rochester Police conceded the warrant for Wilt's arrest had been issued by mistake.

Australian police forces have a domestic violence problem and we're only seeing the tip of the iceberg

  Australian police forces have a domestic violence problem and we're only seeing the tip of the iceberg Police are too often failing to take action against cops who commit domestic violence, fuelling a culture of impunity in forces across the country and putting victims at risk, an ABC News investigation has found. #endheaderDomestic violence workers say they come in "waves" — women who, three or four at a time, step forward for help escaping a special class of abuser experts deem particularly high risk: police officers.Often they'll call from out of town. A woman living in a rural community in one of Australia's eastern states recently got in touch with a domestic violence service in a busy city, hundreds of kilometres away.

The Rochester Police Department 's "entire command staff" announced their retirement on Tuesday, the mayor there said, amid raging protests over the death of Daniel Prude, the black man who was killed while being subdued by city cops while he suffered an apparent breakdown.

At least 40 or more NYPD police officers break up a protest near New York City Hall of three people for not being socially distancing and not wearing a mask.

Wilt had a court date for October 22 after his arrest last month, police said. "It appears the bench warrant was issued erroneously when Mr. Wilt failed to appear in court on September 22nd," Rochester Police said in the news release. "RPD will be working with Rochester City Court to determine how this error occurred, and to determine ways we can prevent future occurrences."

Police said Wilt's September 12 arrest was for unlawful assembly and resisting arrest.

That took place during a protest demanding justice for Daniel Prude, a Black man who died days after officers put a hood over his head and pressed his face into the pavement on March 23.

The release of police body camera footage of the encounter almost six months after his death triggered protests in Rochester and calls for police reform.

Rochester Mayor Lovely Warren last month tapped a Black woman to become the new interim city police chief after former police chief La'Ron Singletary was relieved of duty following the outcry sparked by the release of the video.

Prude's family has filed a civil lawsuit against the city of Rochester and members of the police department involved with Prude's death, alleging a cover-up by city officials and members of the police force.

The Rochester Police Department has been contacted for additional comment.
