Two more Brooklyn men charged in Capitol riot 1

Two Brooklyn men were arrested by the FBI on Tuesday for allegedly participating in the Jan. 6 Capitol riot, a bureau spokesperson and a source told The Post.

The suspects, 23-year-old Francis Connor of Dyker Heights and 26-year-old Antonio Farrigno Jr. of Sheepshead Bay, were both arrested by the feds Tuesday morning for taking part in the uprising, an FBI spokesperson said.

The pair allegedly traveled to the nation’s capital with fellow Brooklyn rioter Anton Lunyk, 26, who was busted by the feds in May after a friend saw him at the riot in a tweet posted to The Post’s Twitter feed, a source familiar with the case said.

They were each charged with trespassing and disorderly conduct and expected to make an initial appearance in Brooklyn federal court later Tuesday, the source added.

Screenshots of some of these messages between two suspects and their friend Anton Lunyk were obtained after the riots.

More than 600 suspects have been charged with running riot in the deadly Capitol insurrection on Jan. 6 as throngs of President Donald Trump supporters stormed the building in an attempt to overturn the results of the 2020 presidential election.

Some of the rioters beat police officers with poles and other objects during the uprising, which led to the deaths of at least five people, including a rioter who was shot and killed by an officer protecting members of Congress.
