The rioter who paraded around the Capitol building with the Confederate battle flag last week turned himself in to federal authorities in his home state of Delaware on Thursday, authorities said.
The suspect, Kevin Seefried, surrendered to US Marshals in Wilmington with his son Hunter, an FBI spokesperson said.
They are both expected to make an initial court appearance on federal charges that will be filed in Washington, the spokesperson added.
Seefried is suspected of walking around the Capitol building with the large Confederate flag after throngs of Donald Trump supporters stormed the building as Congress was meeting to certify Joe Biden’s election win.
The FBI released images of Seefried carrying the flag through the building earlier this week, asking the public to contact law enforcement if they knew of his location and identity.
Since the riot last week — which left five people dead — federal authorities have arrested numerous suspects across the country, including an MTA worker
