A sixth man has been identified and arrested for his alleged involvement in a May 2012 attack by anti-racist activists on a group of white supremacists and white nationalists in a restaurant in the Chicago suburb of Tinley Park.

Jason Richard Hammond, 28, of Chicago, faces state charges of armed violence, aggravated battery and mob action, Tinley Park Police Chief Steve Neubauer said following the suspect’s arrest last Thursday, the Chicago Tribune reported.
