Detective Brady Kirby says an adult reported being assaulted Aug. 12, the day the "Unite the Right" rally erupted into chaos with violent confrontations between attendees and counterprotesters.

Kirby says police have video of the incident that shows the victim being assaulted "in one way or another" over several minutes. Police released photos of the suspects taken from video.

Kirby says he can't comment on whether the suspects or victim, who wasn't further identified, were attending the rally.

He says the victim suffered minor injuries.
