January 14th local time, U.S. police officer Hodges talked about his experience of being besieged in the congressional riots in an interview. Hodges said that he was sandwiched between a door by demonstrators.
“He (the demonstrators) tore off my mask, took my baton and beat me with batons. These people are real fanatics…
I can’t protect myself effectively.” Hodges was eventually rescued by other police officers.
He said that he had suffered a headache for a week afterward and may have suffered a slight concussion.
