New video shows the attack on Capitol Police Officer Brian Sicknick, who died in the Jan. 6 riots.            
According to authorities, officer Sicknick was attacked with chemical spray. The South River native died hours later.            
Two New Jersey natives in the video have been arrested and charged for the attack, but not in connection with his death.
Court documents show George Tanios and Julian Khater are both from New Brunswick. They are accused of using a chemical spray on police officers during the riot. Sicknick later died.
Khater allegedly is heard saying, “Give me that bear [expletive].”
Tanios is allegedly heard saying, “Hold on, hold on, not yet, not yet…it’s still early.” To which Khater allegedly replies, “They just [expletive] sprayed me.”
A photo shows an officer spraying Khater as rioters allegedly threatened a barrier.
The FBI says Khater and Tanios were working together, although it is unclear how they know each other. The FBI found Tanios on social media.
Tanios, the self-described “Sandwich Nazi,” launched a business in West Virginia that is modeled after the famous fat sandwiches at Rutgers University.
Khater's LinkedIn profile shows he lived in Somerset and worked around New Jersey as a bartender and even as a  sales consultant. He was arrested coming off a plane to Newark Liberty International Airport.
