Six months after the insurrection at the Capitol Building on January 6, 2021, arrested and indictments are still being handed down. On Thursday, the FBI released a report regarding five more insurrectionists were hauled in, this time for attacking Capitol Police officers.

A statement released by the FBI listed five Florida residents who range in age from 21 to 37 years old and said that the group had been violent with police officers during the riot, beating them with flag poles and injuring some. Four of those indicted have been arrested while one is still on the loose.

‘Olivia Michele Pollock, 30; Joshua Christopher Doolin, 22; and Joseph Daniel Hutchinson III, 25, all of Lakeland; as well as Michael Steven Perkins, 37, of Plant City, are charged with federal offenses that include assault on law enforcement, violent entry and disorderly conduct and theft of government property, among other charges. Jonathan Daniel Pollock, 21, of Lakeland, remains at large. Olivia Pollock, Doolin and Perkins made their initial court appearance in the Middle District of Florida on June 30. Hutchison made his initial court appearance in the Middle District of Georgia the same day.’

The group, all of whom were known to one another prior to the insurrection, committed violent acts together and separately, working their way around to different parts of the building. At one point, two of them stole a riot shield from an officer and brandished it as a weapon.

‘According to court documents, Jonathan and Olivia Pollock, Hutchinson, Doolin and Perkins were on the west side of the Capitol on Jan. 6. At approximately 1:56 p.m., Jonathan Pollock and his younger brother, charged toward a line of police officers while brandishing flagpoles.’

At another point, four were inside the building carrying spray chemicals and zip ties, presumably to attack and subdue either officers or members of Congress. The five indicted on Thursday join 465 others who have been indicted and arrested on charges stemming from that day.

‘By 2:55 p.m., Jonathan and Olivia Pollock, Doolin, and Perkins were standing on the ledge of the upper west terrace. Doolin had zip-tie handcuffs tucked in his belt and a riot-control chemical canister slung over his shoulder. Jonathan Pollock yelled, “Let’s go,” then climbed to the front of the bleachers, grabbed an officer by the shoulders and attempted to pull him over the railings.’
