NEW YORK — Two more men wanted in the deadly riot at the U.S. Capitol have been arrested — including one who reportedly served as a bodyguard to former President Donald Trump’s longtime confidant, Roger Stone.

The FBI said Monday that Roberto Minuta and Isaac Steve Sturgeon were taken into federal custody.

Minuta, who was freed on bail, is accused of breaching the Capitol grounds and berating police officers.

The New York Times previously reported he had provided security to Stone in the hours before the attack.

His attorney told a judge Minuta used no force and was a respected member of his community.

Sturgeon was arrested at John F. Kennedy International Airport after being deported from Kenya.
