New York’s Capitol attackers: Queens Republican leader cuffed for alleged role in Jan. 6 coup attempt

So far, federal agents have arrested at least seven New York City residents in the wake of the Jan. 6 Capitol coup attempt that sought to stop the peaceful transition of power from one president to another.

The latest arrest came on Feb. 23, when Philip Grillo, 46, was picked up at his girlfriend’s home in Glen Oaks, Queens. Grillo is a Republican district leader who made a failed attempted at running in the recent special election for the vacant 24th City Council District seat, according to the Queens Daily Eagle.
