A pro-life organization near Salem, Oregon was attacked with two Molotov cocktails Sunday night following an unsuccessful break-in attempt, according to police.
The offices of Oregon Right to Life (ORTL) were targeted by an unknown suspect or suspects who “ignited two Molotov cocktails and threw them toward the brick building,” according to the Keizer Police Department (KPD). There was a small fire that caused “minimal damage.”
“Understandably, our team is shaken up by this attack,” ORTL Executive Director Lois Anderson said in a statement. “We are committed to taking proper precautions to protect the safety of our staff as we move forward.”
“We are thankful for the quick action of our first responders committed to maintaining a safe environment to operate in this community,” she added.
No one was injured or in the building at the time of the attack, but the case is currently under investigation by police detectives and an arson investigator, according to KPD.
Protesters also attacked pro-life group Wisconsin Family Action’s headquarters in Madison, Wisconsin on Sunday, throwing a Molotov cocktail into the building while a separate fire was started that damaged the structure, according to police.
