Federal authorities arrested two men suspected in last week's siege of the Capitol who were allegedly seen in tactical gear and carrying plastic restraints.

They are Tennessee resident Eric Gavelek Munchel, and Texas man Larry Rendell Brock. We have no affiliation with this employee and their actions were their own.
Brock graduated from the Air Force Academy in 1989; he told the magazine he served in Afghanistan and in Iraq.
The affidavit states that Munchel "knowingly and willfully joined and encouraged a crowd of individuals who forcibly entered the U.S. Capitol and impeded, disrupted, and disturbed the orderly conduct of business by the United States House of Representatives and the United States Senate". Brock confirmed to the New Yorker that he is the person in the images.
After feeling confident in his identification, Scott-Railton told CBS News, "I decided it was time to contact the Federal Bureau of Investigation and refer the info to them". "I believe American public needed to know but wanted to be certain".
His ex-wife, whom he was married to for 18 years, called the FBI National Threat Operations Center to report she recognized him in photos taken inside the Capitol during the deadly January.
She told authorities: "I just know that when I saw this was happening I was afraid he would be there. It is such a good picture of him and I recognize his patch". He is an Air Force vet. Five people are now dead, including a woman who was shot by police as she and a crowd of other people tried to force their way toward the House chambers where lawmakers where sheltering, as well as a police officer who was beaten by members of the mob.
Queries about Brock's military record and awards did not receive an immediate response.
Also arrested was Doug Jensen, who was filmed chasing a Black police officer up the stairs of the Capitol, and Trump-supporting QAnon conspiracy theorist Jacob Anthony Chansley, also known as Jake Angeli, who posed for photos on the Senate dais carrying a spear and wearing a headdress made of coyote skin and buffalo horns.
