(CNN)The FBI has arrested Kevin Seefried, seen carrying a Confederate flag inside Capitol Hill, according to a federal criminal complaint.

Seefried had been a focus of the FBI's efforts to get the public to help them identify riot participants.

The complaint identifies him as the man seen in the photos, widely circulated online, carrying a large Confederate flag inside the US Capitol during the January 6 siege.

Kevin Seefried told the FBI he had brought the Confederate flag with him to Washington from his home in Delaware, where he normally displays it outside.

The FBI learned of the men's names after a coworker of Hunter Seefried reported he had bragged about being inside the Capitol building with his father on January 6.

The New York Times was the first to identify Kevin Seefried as the individual carrying the flag.

Anyone with information about people who participated in the Capitol siege can contact the FBI at 1-800-CALL-FBI.
