WASHINGTON, D.C. (WFSB) -- At least two Connecticut residents were arrested after being involved in the unrest at the U.S. Capitol building on Wednesday afternoon.

According to an arrest report from Washington D.C.’s Metropolitan Police, 40-year-old Maurcio Mendez and 40-year-old Victoria Bergeson were both arrested.

They were charged with curfew violation and unlawful entry.

Metropolitan police told Eyewitness News that they both did enter the Capitol building on Wednesday.

They spent the night in jail and are both due in court sometime Thursday.

A Connecticut Trump supporter traveled to Washington D.C. on Wednesday, but didn't expect to see what did end up happening.

The two arrests were among the list of more than 50 arrests seen on the Metropolitan Police Department’s website Thursday morning.

While these two were arrested, there were many other Connecticut residents who were at the Capitol at the time of the riots. 

One Trump supporter says their mission was peaceful to make their voices hear about the voter fraud and try to influence the House and Senate. 

Joe Visconti was recording on his cell phone. The Trump supporter and West Hartford Native drove down to Washington D.C. with four other Connecticut residents on Tuesday. 

Visconti saw people getting hurt, but he says the majority of people weren't taking part in the violence. 

"People were standing there, just standing there and you could see people rushing into the building. Most people weren't going into the building," Visconti said. 

He says many Republicans don't condone violence. 

"We're not all terrorists. The people who ran into the building were, but don't call the hundreds of thousand of people outside terrorists," Visconti said. 

Four people died as a result of Wednesday's riots at the US Capitol.
