Antifa member arrested for assault on Marines in Philadelphia

Tom Keenan

A Philly Antifa leader surrendered to Philadelphia Police after attacking two United States Marine Corps reservists at the “We the People” rally on November 17.

Tom Keenan turned himself in to law enforcement, having played a pivotal role in a gang beating and robbery of two US Marines two weekends ago.

Investigators say that Keenan and other Antifa members ambushed the reservists after a “We the People” rally, having maced, punched and kicked the Marines before robbing them.

A video released last week revealed three of the suspects, who allegedly called the Marines “Nazis” and “white supremacists.”

According to Philadelphia magazine, 33-year-old Keenan has been charged with two counts each of criminal conspiracy, aggravated assault, terroristic threats, simple assault, and reckless endangerment. He has since been released on bail and is scheduled for a preliminary hearing on December 6th.

The investigation is ongoing and police are still hunting for the other suspects. Keenan was not charged with robbery, despite having allegedly participated in the beating that led up to it.

Keenan had previously been arrested during an alleged Klu-Klux Klan rally near City Hall back in 2007, and was charged with charged with criminal conspiracy, institutional vandalism, resisting arrest, and criminal mischief, among other offenses.
