Pennsylvania man pleads guilty in Jan. 6 assault case

BIRDSBORO, Pa. (WHTM) – A Pennsylvania man has pleaded guilty to charges related to the attack on the United States Capitol on January 6, 2021.

The United States Attorney’s Office for the District of Columbia says Anthony Nolf of Birdsboro, Berks County, who has pleaded guilty in a riot case in the District of Columbia.

According to the Justice Department, Nolf attended the “Stop the Steal” rally at the Ellipse before heading to the Capitol on January 6 to protest the 2020 presidential election.

Nolf, who officials said was wearing a camouflage hat that read “Trump 2020” in red, white and blue letters, helped remove the fence at the Capitol as protesters approached.

Nolf was then seen in the Lower West Terrace Tunnel and “participated in a coordinated ‘heave-ho’ action with other rioters against the assembled police line.”

Nolf was arrested on April 5, 2023 and is among more than 1,100 people charged in connection with the attack on the Capitol. The sentencing hearing is scheduled for January 19, 2024.
