According to a Justice Department news release Tuesday, a Wisconsin man has been charged in the firebombing of a pro-life center in Madison, Wisconsin.
During the attack on the Wisconsin Family Action in May 2022, vandals threw a Molotov cocktail into the building and then started a separate fire when it failed to ignite, investigators told Fox News Digital at the time. Photos showed the building’s exterior was also marked in italics: “If abortions aren’t safe, then neither are you.”
Accordingly the release of the DOJHridindu Sankar Roychowdhury, 29, of Madison, is charged with attempted fire or explosives damage and was arrested in Boston earlier Tuesday.

“According to the complaint, Mr. Roychowdhury used an incendiary device in violation of federal law in connection with his efforts to terrorize and intimidate a private organization,” Assistant Attorney General Matthew G. Olsen of the Justice Department’s Division of National Security said in a statement. “I commend the dedication and professionalism of law enforcement personnel who have worked diligently to ensure justice is served.”
“Violence is not an acceptable way for anyone to express their views or disagreements,” said Deputy Director Robert R. Wells of the FBI’s Counterterrorism Division in the statement. “Today’s arrest demonstrates the FBI’s commitment to vigorously prosecuting those responsible for this dangerous attack and others across the country, and holding them accountable for their criminal actions.”

In its statement, the DOJ said it collected DNA from the crime scene and identified Roychowdhury as a possible suspect this month after matching the sample to DNA taken by law enforcement for trash and observing him dumping it.
He was arrested at Boston Logan International Airport while attempting to travel to Guatemala City. The date for his appearance in federal court in Madison has not yet been set.
