Last week, we told you that the Philadelphia Police Department was asking for the publics help to identify a group of people who allegedly attacked United States Marine Corps reservists in Old City, and now police say they have one suspect in custody: Tom Keenan, who has been associated with Philadelphias antifa movement.
Investigators say that a group of men and women maced, punched, kicked, and robbed the reservists near Front and Chestnut streets on Saturday, November 17th, around 3:20 p.m., just down the street from the controversial We the People rally. The group allegedly called the reservists Nazis and white supremacists.
According to police, Keenan, a 33-year-old Mount Airy resident, turned himself last week.
He has been charged with two counts each of criminal conspiracy, aggravated assault, terroristic threats, simple assault, and reckless endangerment. Keenan, who was not charged with robbery, was released on bail and is scheduled for a preliminary hearing on December 6th.

If I was going to rob/assault someone, I wouldnt target marines....
Antifa is not an anti-fascist movement. American Marines are not fascists.
As for "alt-right outlets," is the author implying that Antifa is right-wing?
I’m surprised Keenan and his fellow commies are even walking around, and not in the ICU!
Looks like a rocket surgeon (yes, on purpose)
Antifa is the perfect definition of fascism. They’re just to stupid to understand what fascism is.
Bring back curb stomping and this crap would stop.
A proper punishment would be to turn the slime mold over to those marines for one hour.
In a sealed room.
WTF???!!! So, Antifa has no leadership because Keenan is only "TERMED" a leader therefore he's not really a leader?
KEENAN IS A LEADER OF A DOMESTIC TERRORIST ORGANIZATION AND SHOULD BE LOCKED AWAY FOR YEARS!!!!
No, fascists are socialists of the nationalist and imperialist stripe. They don’t want to share power with people from other places.
Antifa is a communist paramilitary that has been around since the Weimar Republic. Back in the cold war the term “global socialism” was used as a synonym for communism.
During the cold war Antifa ran operations throughout Europe from behind the iron curtain. While most of their activities were the of the rock and Molotov Cocktail variety, they proved themselves able to field a rocket propelled grenade launcher or a mortar upon occasion.
It never was an anti fascists movement. It was/is an antiAmerican movement.And in my opinion, they should be shot on sight like the rabid dogs that they are.
Bets on his ever having been with a woman.
How in the world did he ever fit into the skin tight, black pants the antifags seem to like so much?
Antifa is anti-fascist and abortionists are doctors. Just more democrat speech control.
If the Marine reservists were anything the men I saw running a “Toys for Tots” collection in my area, they were quite elderly. This would sound like Antifa’s speed.
Why aren't you stomping Tom Keenan's guts out?
Put him through basic training.
One hour? He will need medical attention within three minutes.
So according to Phillyrag...er...I mean Phillymag “We The People” is “controversial” and “antifa” is “anti-fascist”.
