Federal court documents state Shane Leedon Jenkins was identifiable by a red knit cap captured in a video clip taken during the insurrection. A tipster who does not know Jenkins told the FBI the person seen smashing a window was also the same person who posted photos on his social media accounts in the same headwear from the Capitol grounds on Jan. 6.
In addition, court filings state security cameras and body worn video could make out Jenkins in the knit cap throwing different objects at officers, including a desk drawer, a pipe or metal rod and a flagpole.
Investigators further placed Jenkins in Washington D.C. on the day of the riot when he was spotted outside of a hotel in town confronting a D.C. Metro police officer trying to enforce curfew later that evening, documents state.
Jenkins, who is the fourth person from the Houston area to be arrested in connection to the deadly riot, was charged with assault of a federal officer; obstruction of law enforcement during civil disorder; damage to federal property; knowingly entering or remaining in any restricted building or grounds without lawful authority; and disorderly and disruptive conduct in a restricted building or grounds.

The agency urged people to take a look at the photos on its website and to submit information to 1-800-CALL-FBI (225-5324) or at the FBI's tip submission site.
