A Metro-North worker called out sick to be part of the mob that stormed the US Capitol — and he has been suspended amid an FBI investigation into his role, The Post has learned.

Will Pepe, a laborer at Metro-North’s Brewster rail yard, is under investigation for participating in the mob that briefly halted Congress as it was certifying the election of Pres.-elect Joe Biden, the MTA confirmed.

Pepe called out sick on Wednesday to attend the event, an MTA source said. He has been suspended without pay as the agency seeks to get him fired.

“Effective immediately this individual has been suspended from Metro-North without pay and will be disciplined in accordance with their collective bargaining agreement pending an investigation,”

This alleged conduct is abhorrent and goes against the values of Metro-North, New York and the nation.”

The seven-year MTA employee did not return a call for comment.
