MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - FBI agents arrested a Rochester woman on charges connected to the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol.

Victoria White is expected to make her first appearance in federal court later Thursday. The details of the charges against the 39-year-old White have been sealed.

The Capitol insurrection by a mob of Trump supporters left five people dead, including a Capitol police officer, and about 138 other officers injured.

White is the second Minnesotan to be charged in the attack. Last month, federal prosecutors charged 31-year-old Jordan Stotts, of Moorhead, with trespassing and disorderly conduct on Capitol grounds, both federal misdemeanors.
