Antifa Member Charged in Assault of Marine Reservists Near ‘We the People’ Rally in Philadelphia
FOX NEWS reports:
Tom Keenan, 33, of Mount Airy, reportedly turned himself in to police last week after investigators released a video that allegedly showed him and two other suspects yelling at the group after a “We the People” rally on Nov. 17 in Philadelphia.
He was charged with two counts each of criminal conspiracy, aggravated assault, terroristic threats and other related offenses, Philadelphia Police confirmed to Fox News.
“The suspects then maced the complainants, and then proceeded to punch and kick them,” police said in a statement. “During the assault, one of the complainant’s had his cell phone stolen by one of the male suspects.” Tom Keenan, below, was arrested.
Keenan turned himself in to police on Nov. 20th and was arrested.
According to Philadelphia Magazine, Keenan is believed to part of a local Antifa group – with some blogs and outlets identifying him as a leader of the group along with Daryle Lamont Jenkins of One Peoples Project.
Police said the case is still open and that they are still investigating the other suspects.
