Aaron Mostofsky, son of Brooklyn judge, spotted at Capitol riot is arrested



The son of a prominent Brooklyn judge who was part of the mob that stormed the US Capitol building last week has been arrested, a law enforcement source told The Post.

Aaron Mostofsky was busted Tuesday at his brother’s house in Brooklyn by federal agents on multiple charges, including theft of government property for allegedly stealing a police riot shield and bulletproof vest, the source said.

Mostofsky, who is the son of Shlomo Mostofsky, a Supreme Court judge and a prominent figure in the Orthodox Jewish community, was photographed with both items.

The source told The Post Mostofsky will appear in Brooklyn federal court on the charges Tuesday afternoon.

After the photos emerged, Mostofsky told The Post that he felt “we were cheated” in the election.

“I don’t think 75 million people voted for Trump — I think it was close to 85 million,” he said. “I think certain states that have been red for a long time turned blue and were stolen, like New York.”
