TORONTO -- Toronto police are seeking the public's help in identifying 10 "most wanted" people they allege took part in violence and vandalism during the G20 protests.
The police are aiming to build on success after releasing a series of photographs last week, as one of those people turned himself in to police Wednesday morning.
Det.-Sgt. Gary Giroux said after six images were released last week, three people were identified overnight and one is now in custody and facing charges.
Ashran Ravindhraj, 25, of Toronto, surrendered himself to police Wednesday and is now facing charges of arson and two counts of mischief over $5,000. Police allege he smashed windows and burned a police car.
In releasing this round of the "most wanted" G20 suspects, police said they hope to continue the updates on a weekly basis and whittle down about 60 people still wanted for protest violence.
However, he acknowledged some of those people may never be identified.
"We're still in the process of collecting as much information as we can, to generate as much of a collection of basket as we can before we move into the next phase of the investigation," Giroux said at a press conference.
One of the people whose image was released Wednesday was responsible for a "tremendous amount of damage" and an attack on a member of the media, Giroux said.
Giroux also urged the public to keep submitting photographs and video images of "criminal acts committed during the G20." As of Wednesday, the G20 investigative team said they had received more than 14,000 still images and more than 500 videos.
