AUSTIN, Texas – A Texas woman was arrested Monday night after she allegedly threw a homemade Molotov bomb at a group of pro-lifers praying outside of a Planned Parenthood facility in Austin.
Melanie Toney, 52, was taken into custody after witnesses to the incident were able to write down part of her license plate number and call police. She now faces charges of aggravated assault.
The incident occurred outside of Planned Parenthood’s South Austin Health Center at approximately 6 p.m. on Monday, as a woman was seen slowly driving up to the location. Members of 40 Days for Life and the Texas Coalition for Life had been standing outside of the facility that day praying for the plight of the unborn.
Ruth Allwein with 40 Days for Life told local television station KXAN that she initially thought that perhaps the woman was pulling up to ask for information, but then realized that something was terribly wrong.
