    Police in Delaware have released photos of more than four dozen suspects they'd like to identify for their alleged role in a wild and destructive party on the University of Delaware campus.

    The surveillance photos showing 44 individuals were taken during a Sept. 9 incident along South College Avenue in Newark, Del.

    More than one thousand people were attending a house party along the block when police went to break it up around 11:30 p.m. that night, according to Newark Police.

    Officials say the partiers then left the party and streamed down South College Avenue -- blocking traffic, urinating in public and walking on the hoods of parked cars.

    The commotion caused the crowd to grow to several thousand people and it took more than 75 officers to disperse everyone, according to officials.

    In all, police say several cars and signs were damaged.

    At least three people were arrested after the incident, but officials are asking for the public's help in finding others they say were part of the disorderly crowd.

    Police are also asking anyone who may have recorded video of the mob to provide it to them.

    Those with tips are asked to email Newark Police Det. Greg Micolucci here.
