North Carolina Offers Reward After Republican Party Offices Firebombed

A $5,000 reward is being offered for information that can help authorities find those responsible



    Workers at the Orange County GOP office set up a makeshift operation with folding tables on Monday, Oct. 17, 2016 in Hillsborough, N.C.

    North Carolina is offering a reward of $5,000 for information that can help authorities find and arrest whoever is responsible for firebombing a local Republican Party headquarters last weekend, NBC News reported.

    Gov. Pat McCrory, a Republican, called it an “assault on democracy.” Republican presidential candidate Mike Pence visited the site Tuesday, calling the attack an “act of terrorism.”

    Authorities said a bottle containing a flammable substance was thrown through the front window at the offices. Swastikas were also painted on a nearby wall, threatening “Nazi Republicans” to leave town “or else.”

    Both Republicans and Democrats condemned the attack, with Democrats creating a GoFundMe page to help raise money to reopen the office. The group said it has raised about $13,000 so far.

    The victim said she was in the bathroom getting ready for school. When she came out, she saw Hanggigoble hiding under the bed. She ran from her room and called her mother. Her mother then contacted the sheriff's office and came home.
