ORIGINAL POST, AUG. 5, 3:50 P.M.: Eli Rueven Jackson, who also goes by "Eliyahu Jackson," is wanted in connection with Huntington Beach's "white riots," according to Huntington Beach Police.

An arrest warrant advisory claims the 20-year-old Sunset Beach transient, who was apparently positively identified by his family, participated in "several acts of vandalism and riotous behavior" after the U.S. Open of Surfing on July 28.

Here is the advisory:

He is described as black, 6-foot-1 and 152 pounds with brown hair and brown eyes.

According to police, Jackson popped up in several videos shot during the rioting. And, thanks to social media, police arrested a second suspect after the riots--and this one is local and underage. The 15-year-old Huntington Beach boy, who was not identified due to his age, reportedly threw glass bottles into crowds and tipped over portable toilets.

But the charges that had the lad being booked into Orange County Juvenile Hall Thursday sound more serious than that: assault on a peace officer, vandalism, inciting a riot and refusing to disperse when ordered.

The first suspect arrested after the riots, Illario Niko Johnson, pleaded not guilty in court last week. The Chino 18-year-old is charged with arson, inciting a riot, participating in an unlawful assembly and refusing to disperse when ordered.

Johnson and the 15-year-old join eight other suspects, including a Fullerton firefighter, arrested the night of the riots. All of them are named in the bottom of this post:

Eli is seriously one of the nicest most mellow people I've ever known. I've known him since middle school. OC Weekly should post the outcome of his sentencing for the public because he was INNOCENT. Hopefully this media censorship doesn't continue and the public can stop making innocent people targets of vulgar comments and threats without knowing the whole true story.

On the HBPD FB page, it says that the two men pictured on top of page 2 of your article were actually good Samaritans who were attempting to stop the rioting and ended up injured.  You should really clarify that.  It would be terrible for victims to be id'ed as perpetrators.
