    Police in New Hampshire say they've identified two men accused of rioting after the New England Patriots' loss in the 2018 Super Bowl.

    Durham Police Detective Sgt. Jack Dalton said Monday arrests of the two men are forthcoming, and their names will be released after the arrests are made. Foster's Daily Democrat reports the men will be charged with rioting.

    Photos of the suspects were provided to police by a passer-by, and the images show a man climbing a light pole and a man climbing a tree.

    Police say also expect to receive video captured by the University of New Hampshire's mobile surveillance.

    A UNH student was previously arrested and charged with throwing a bottle at a state trooper at the post-Super Bowl gathering.
