The New York Police Department has made a fourth arrest in an aggressive manhunt after an assault on two officers during a protest over the chokehold death of Eric Garner.

Police officials said Sunday that 29-year-old Cindy Gorn, of Brooklyn, was arrested on charges of riot, resisting arrest and obstructing governmental administration. It wasn’t clear if she had a lawyer.

Police earlier arrested a 32-year-old man on Saturday, Zach Campbell, on charges of riot and resisting arrest. Police also arrested a 36-year-old woman and another man in connection with the attack. Seven people were seen on amateur video pushing, kicking and punching two officers on the Brooklyn Bridge. Others are still being sought.

The incident occurred at the end of a massive march last week protesting a grand jury decision not to indict a police officer in Garner’s death.
