Two more Burnaby men have been identified as being involved in the Stanley Cup riot last weekend.

Edgar Ricardo Garcia, 20, of Burnaby has been charged with aggravated assault in connection with an incident where two men were stabbed in the 700-block of Hornby Street, say the Vancouver Police Department.

A 22-year-old Burnaby man with no previous criminal convictions also faces charges of assaulting a peace officer, break and enter, mischief and participation in a riot related to an incident at Library Square where he allegedly threw a water bottle at  police, broke a window and then entered a building.

As of Monday, 12 people have turned themselves in to the VPD and three others to police in outside jurisdictions. So far, 117 people have been arrested, most of them on the night of the riot, June 15.

Vancouver police have received about 3,500 emails, including tips, from the public at robbery@vpd.ca.
