Suspected Lee Zeldin Attacker David Jakubonis Arrested on Federal Assault Charge

The Army veteran who attacked gubernatorial candidate Lee Zeldin during a campaign stop near Rochester was slapped with a federal assault charge Saturday, authorities revealed.  David Jakubonis “wilfully” assaulted the congressman “with a dangerous weapon” in Perinton on Thursday evening, an FBI agent alleged in a criminal complaint filed in United States District Court. The 43-year-old suspect is set to make a court appearance in front of US Magistrate Judge Marian W. Payson later Saturday, according to the complaint. 

This sounds political because these things are almost always political especially when the midterms are coming up.
