NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Police were searching for a suspect who they said firebombed a women’s health clinic in Flatbush-Ditmas Park, Brooklyn twice.
The incidents happened around 1:56 a.m. this past Sunday, and around 4 a.m. Friday. Both targeted Borough Park OB/GYN office at 1414-A Newkirk Ave. in Brooklyn, police said.
In the first incident, the man used a fire hydrant cap to break the door of the clinic, police said. Surveillance video showed the man throwing the fire hydrant cap repeatedly at the door, and then placing some kind of glowing incendiary device inside.
In the second incident, the man used a sledgehammer to break the door and threw an incendiary device into the clinic again, police said.
Police did not indicate how severely the obstetrics and gynecology clinic was damaged.
The suspect was described as being in his 40s and about 5 feet 10 inches tall.
The 2015 NCAA Women’s Golf Championships are officially underway from Concession Golf Club in Bradenton, Florida. Leading the field are a slew of Pac-12 powers, including Washington, UCLA and Stanford.
Duke is the defending national champion and coming off another fantastic season with a 71.55 team rating, per NCAA.com, which was sixth in the nation. Leona Maguire leads the Blue Devils charge, as she’s currently ranked first in the world amateur rankings and was named ACC Freshman and Player of the Year.
Here’s a recap of all the daily action from Concession Golf Club, as well as full team results for the NCAA Women’s Golf Championships.
Day 1 Recap
The story on Friday’s opening day was weather. Lightning caused a delay just before 5 p.m. ET, though teams would get back on the course for nearly two more hours before it came back and forced play to be suspended with just half the field completing their round.
Play will resume on Saturday, per Steve Carp of the Las Vegas Review-Journal:
Duke has the best score among teams that were able to finish on Friday, shooting a five-over 293. Maguire led the Blue Devils with a one-under 71, which is more than one full stroke higher than where she has been in her last five tournaments, via Beth Ann Nichols of Golf Week:
It’s hard to blame Maguire for “underperforming” given the tricky weather conditions in Florida on Thursday. Her rise in the United States has been meteoric, making an instant impression as a freshman coming from Ireland.
Maguire talked about where her game is at and improvements she’s made since the season started with Josh Sens of Golf.com.
“It’s hard to single out just one thing,” Maguire said. “My iron game has been pretty strong of late. I’ve given myself a lot of good opportunities. But I’ve also been spending a fair amount of time in the gym, and I’ve gotten a lot longer.”
However, the round of the day was being put up by Stanford’s Mariah Stackhouse before lightning forced her off the course. She was at four under par through 12 holes before Mother Nature decided it couldn’t stand seeing someone dominating the course.
Stackhouse wasn’t the only player on pace to shoot in the 60s, as Jason Dill of the Bradenton Herald noted Alabama’s Emma Talley was one off the pace:
Thanks in large part to Stackhouse’s efforts, the Cardinal were on pace to be in the lead at the end of Round 1 at plus-three for the foursome. Shannon Aubert (even through 13) and Lauren Kim (one over through 11) were posting solid rounds behind the All-Conference star.
Duke has been one of the NCAA powers in women’s golf since its inception in 1982, winning six championships. Stanford is looking for its first title, so this was a good starting salvo even if it was incomplete due to bad weather.
Baylor is also right in the mix at seven over par before its round was halted, and USC is just four strokes behind Duke with all of its players in the clubhouse. There will be a lot of action taking place on Saturday to get 12 teams caught up, so expect a lot of moving on the leaderboard before it’s all said and done.
