Cops arrest MAGA rioters who assaulted late Capitol officer Brian Sicknick
Two MAGA rioters have been arrested and charged with assaulting the late Capitol police officer Brian Sicknick, who died after being attacked by Trump supporters at the January 6th attack on the United States Capitol building.
The Washington Post reports that 32-year-old Pennsylvania resident Julian Elie Khater and 39-year-old West Virginia resident George Pierre Tanios were "arrested Sunday and are expected to appear in federal court Monday."
Police allege that they have video showing Khater discharging a cannister of bear spray into Sicknick's face during the January 6th riots.
Khater and Tanios are facing a total of nine criminal counts, including charges of assaulting Sicknick and two other offices during the riots.
