As depicted in the videos, Cappuccio joined in an effort to push past officers guarding the lower west terrace doors inside the tunnel and violently ripped off the mask of an officer pinned against the doors by other rioters.
Cappuccio can be seen grabbing the officer’s mask and yanking on it with what appears to be a significant amount of force. Portions of the events were filmed by another rioter inside the tunnel who has since been arrested. Cappuccio is further seen with a baton as he pulled on the officer’s mask. Footage of this event shows the officer crushed in between a doorway and riot shield, without his gas mask, while screaming and yelling for help with his mouth bloodied.
