The man was identified as Jose Gregorio Hernandez Carrasco, aka “Robocob.” Gonzalez said they were able to locate him thanks to the help of people who filmed the moment when a group of violent right-wing protesters attacked the 22-year-old officer Dubraska Alvarez. 

Wednesday’s protests were called by right-wing opposition leader Henrique Capriles, who invoked violence by calling on the nation's military to rebel against the government of President Nicolas Maduro.

Capriles urged his followers to demand that electoral authorities move preparations forward for a recall referendum against Maduro and threatened that if the government wants to implement the state of exception by presidential decree it will have to do so “by force.”
