The FBI arrests three Florida residents for attacking police officers in the assault on the federal Capitol

Fourt Lauderdale – He Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) arrested three residents of Florida on Saturday, the third anniversary of his alleged attack on police officers in the federal capitol during the insurrection of January 6, 2021.

Jonathan D. Pollock, 24; his sister, Olivia M. Pollock, 33; and Joseph D. Hutchinson, 27, were detained at a ranch in Groveland, Florida, and will be arraigned Monday, the FBI said in a statement. Groveland is about 30 miles (50 kilometers) west of Orlando and about 45 miles (75 kilometers) north of their homes in Lakeland.

They had been charged in April 2021. Jonathan Pollock had gone into hiding shortly after the attack. His sister and Hutchinson had been arrested in June 2021 and released on bail, but fled shortly before they went to trial in Washington, DC, last March.

According to a 53-page indictment, Jonathan Pollock and Hutchinson appear on video recordings repeatedly punching officers during the riot. Pollock is also accused of snatching riot shields from officers, and he and Hutchinson are accused of using the edge of one to hit an officer in the neck or face.

Olivia Pollock is accused of punching and elbowing an officer and attempting to grab officers’ batons.

All are charged with assault on officers, violent entry into the Capitol and other serious crimes. His lawyer could not be contacted at this time.

No one returned a phone message left Saturday at Rapture Guns & Knives, the Lakeland store owned by the Pollock family and where Hutchinson once worked.

In June 2021, the Pollocks’ brother Gabriel defended his brothers and Hutchinson in an interview with The Ledger, Lakeland’s newspaper.

“I feel like a political movement is being perpetrated, which is sad,” Gabriel Pollock told the newspaper. “This is not how the country should be run…with everything that’s going on in the country, I think people are pretty fed up with the way the country is being taken away from people.”
