A 33-year-old Massachusetts man was arrested in Washington, D.C., on Wednesday after the pro-Trump mob stormed the Capitol, the D.C. Metropolitan Police Department said Thursday.

David Ross, of Massachusetts, was one of 68 people arrested by the police department in connection with “the incidents in and around the US Capitol,” police said.

Ross is facing charges for unlawful entry and curfew violation.

D.C. had a 6 p.m. curfew after the mob stormed the Capitol.

Massachusetts U.S. Attorney Andrew Lelling on Thursday said that any Bay State residents who were involved with the siege will be prosecuted back home.

The pro-Trump mob on Wednesday disrupted the congressional certification of President-elect Joe Biden’s Electoral College victory — as the rioters assaulted police officers, ransacked offices and looted the Capitol building. Four people died during the chaos, one of them a woman who was shot and killed by police.

The D.C. Police Department said that 56 officers were injured. Police added that they recovered six firearms and two pipe bombs.

Also, a New Hampshire man was one of the people arrested by Capitol Police on Wednesday. Thomas Gallagher, of Bridgewater, N.H., was arrested and charged with unlawful entry.
