Police arrest suspect in Wisconsin Planned Parenthood bombing
Police in Grand Chute, Wisconsin said Tuesday that an arrest has been made in connection with a homemade bomb that detonated over the weekend at a Planned Parenthood clinic in Wisconsin.
Police told Raw Story that the suspect, a male, would not be named until investigators “tie up some loose ends.” Officials also announced Tuesday that the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) will assist with the probe, which may indicate that the suspect worked with others.
Area media indicated that Grand Chute police were able to identify the man by examining security footage showing a white sport utility vehicle with unique markings.
The Planned Parenthood clinic that was attacked suffered only minor damage and has since reopened.
The attack is one of a string across the U.S. in recent months.
Amid a heated debate over funding for Planned Parenthood last month, the Fort Worth offices of Texas State Senator Wendy Davis (D) — a strong supporter of the female health program — were attacked with two firebombs. Another clinic in the Dallas area was attacked in a similar manner by a separate person last July.
