<p>The son of a <a rel=New York County Supreme Court judge who allegedly stormed the Capitol with Donald Trump supporters last week, has been arrested by the FBI.

Aaron Mostofsky, the son of King County Court judge Shlomo Mostofsky, was seen being arrested by FBI agents on Tuesday morning over his alleged involvement in the assault on Congress.

A video shared on Twitter showed several FBI agents outside a property in Midwood Brooklyn, which was believed to be his brother’s address.

Mr Mostofsky was last seen leaving the property on Friday, Law and Crime reported, when he was pictured wearing a hat adorned with the badge of a far-right activist group, Project Veritas.

One agent was carrying a wooden staff and fur cape, which Mr Mostofsky was reportedly seen wearing at last week’s riot in Washington DC, during Tuesday’s arrest.

According to News12 and the New York Post, an official with the FBI in New York confirmed the arrest, and that Mr Mostofsky had been taken into custody. Reuters also confirmed the arrest.

He will be charged by the US attorney’s office in Washington DC, and was set to appear in a Brooklyn federal court on numerous charges on Tuesday afternoon, the Post reported.  Read more:
