A Mill Valley man is being hunted by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) after allegedly being involved in the Capitol Hill riot that occurred on January 6, which led to the death and injury of several people.
The agency obtained body camera footage from security personnel at the scene of the riot that belonged to the Metropolitan Police Department. The recording showed a man assaulting an officer that authorities referred to as J.M. in the criminal complaint.

Authorities observed the suspect, who they later identified as 48-year-old Evan Neumann from Mill Valley, wearing a “Make America Great Again” hat. The suspect was also seen approaching a metal gate in front of officer J.M.
The video showed Neumann putting on a gas mask and later standing near officer J.M. for several minutes. Later, the suspect was seen taking off his gas mask and shouting that the officers protecting the Capitol were “defending the people who are going to kill you f—ing children. They are gonna kill your f—ing children, they are gonna rape them, they are gonna imprison them, and you’re defending the people that are going to do this to your children.”
The suspect continued to shout at the officers and telling them to “kneel to Antifa because they’re little b–ches.” He added that they had no pride or honor. After about 20 minutes from Neumann’s initial appearance in the recording, he pushes the metal barricade straight through a line of officers, the FBI said. Afterward, he is seen reaching over the barricade and trying to hit officer J.M, KRON4 reported.
Hours after the start of the riot, Neumann was still seen at the Capitol resisting police orders, shouting “motherf—ers” and “f—ing murderers.” authorities have charged the suspect with six felony charges, including assaulting an officer and violent entry on Capitol grounds.
