Man Arrested for Bringing Bomb to Kansas Abortion Clinic Where Dr. George Tiller Worked
WICHITA, Kan. - Police say a man is in custody after he brought a small improvised explosive device into a women’s health care clinic that provides abortions in south-central Kansas.
Wichita Police Department spokesman Doug Nolte says officers responded to the South Wind Women’s Center around 3:30 p.m. Monday. He says on-site security inspected a backpack the man brought in and found knives and the explosive device.
Officials told CBS affiliate KWCH in Wichita that the suspect was also carrying a small box wrapped in tape.
Clinic staff evacuated the building, and a bomb squad was called to remove the backpack. No injuries were reported.
