(CNN)The man seen chasing a Black Capitol Police officer up the stairs during Wednesday's insurrection and riot is Doug Jensen, according to a CNN comparative analysis of his booking photo and posts on social media.

Jensen is one of the individuals now facing federal charges.

His neighbor in Des Moines, Iowa, also confirmed to CNN affiliate KCCI that the man in the photos was Jensen.

Jensen -- dressed in a QAnon t-shirt -- is also seen in an Associated Press photo taken by photojournalist Manuel Balce Ceneta -- gesturing toward another Capitol Hill police officer.

In the video captured by the Huffington Post's Igor Bobic, Jensen -- wearing the same QAnon t-shirt -- is seen chasing the unidentified officer with a mob of rioters following him.

Jensen posted on Twitter on November 12 that he was "ready for 4 more years" and "will do whatever it takes. "

Jensen, 41, was arrested for his involvement in a violent crowd breaking into the Capitol, according to the FBI and local authorities in Iowa.

Local authorities were not called to assist with the arrest and FBI officials presented Jensen to Polk County Jail for processing on Saturday.

According to the FBI and the Polk County Sheriff's Office, Jensen faces five federal charges -- of unlawfully entering the Capitol, disrupting government business, violent entry, parading in a Capitol building and blocking law enforcement during the riot.

CNN also reached out to the Polk County Jail to try to contact a lawyer for Jensen, and they deferred to federal officials.
