Capitol riots: How many arrests so far?

It's been nearly a week since the Capitol Hill riot - so how much progress have law enforcement made with bringing the perpetrators to justice?

How many arrests so far?
More than 160 case files have been opened and 70 people charged so far, said Michael Sherwin, US Attorney for the District of Columbia on
