State Patrol Seeks a Second Man Who Breached the Governor's Mansion Grounds Jan. 6


The Washington State Patrol is looking for a second man who was part of the Jan. 6 crowd that broke through the gates and onto the Governor's Mansion grounds.

The man is being investigated for third-degree assault and other unspecified crimes connected to the break-in, according to a WSP press release.

On Jan. 6, hundreds gathered on the state Capitol Campus to rally in support of former President Donald Trump after he lost the election to President Joe Biden. Part of that crowd breached the security gate to the mansion grounds and rallied around the mansion entry. State troopers convinced those on the grounds to leave peacefully after about a half hour.

Last week, the State Patrol released the photo of another man wanted for third-degree assault in connection with the incident.
