January 6 Capitol Attack Suspect Gregory Yetman Surrenders to Authorities in New Jersey

Gregory Yetman, 47

Gregory Yetman, a suspect linked to the January 6 assault on the U.S. Capitol, voluntarily surrendered to the Monroe Township police on Friday morning, as confirmed by the FBI. The peaceful surrender brought an end to a manhunt in New Jersey, with the FBI expressing gratitude for the public’s assistance and for the situation concluding without any incident.

Yetman, 47, faces multiple charges, including felonies, for his alleged involvement in the Capitol riot. These charges include assaulting officers, obstruction of law enforcement during civil disorder, unauthorized entry into restricted building or grounds, engaging in physical violence in a restricted building or grounds, and acts of physical violence in the Capitol grounds or buildings.

Set to be under the U.S. Marshals Service’s custody over the weekend, Yetman is scheduled for an initial court appearance in Newark, New Jersey, on Monday.

A federal arrest warrant was issued for Yetman on November 6. Authorities had been searching for him in the Helmetta area of Middlesex County. During the Capitol attack, Yetman served as a military police sergeant in the New Jersey Army National Guard. The National Guard confirmed his honorable discharge in March 2022 after approximately 12 years of service.

The search intensified after authorities offered a $10,000 reward for Yetman’s capture on Thursday. More than 1,200 individuals have been charged in relation to the January 6 attack over the past 34 months, as reported by the Department of Justice.

This development is part of the ongoing investigations and legal proceedings following the January 6 incident, highlighting continued efforts to hold those involved accountable.
