Five more men have been charged with assaulting police officers in the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol.
The U.S. Attorney’s Office for D.C. said in a statement Monday that a superseding indictment had been unsealed, revealing the charges against the five men.
Jack Wade Whitton, 30, of Locust Grove, Georgia; Jeffrey Sabol of Kittredge, Colorado; and Peter Francis Stager of Conway, Arkansas, are accused of assaulting a D.C. police officer with a baton, a flag, a pole and a crutch. Whitton was arrested Thursday.
Whitton and Sabol are also accused of attacking a different D.C. police officer, along with Clayton Ray Mullins of Benton, Kentucky.
Michael John Lopatic Sr. of Lancaster, Pennsylvania, is accused of attacking a third D.C. officer.
The Capitol was attacked Jan. 6 by a group of supporters of then-President Donald Trump in an attempt to halt the certification of the Electoral College vote that affirmed Joe Biden won the presidency. Five people died in the incident, including a Capitol Police officer; the certification was delayed a few hours.
