PORTLAND, Maine -- Lincoln Park campers were attacked  early Sunday morning, around 4am, when the members of the Occupy Maine camp at Lincoln Park woke up to a loud explosion.
Witnesses who were awake said a car driving by slowed down, and lobbed an IED over the fence. Within a few seconds, it exploded. The blast reportedly lifted a table about a foot off the ground. The table generally requires 2 people to lift and move. The target was the center of camp where the overnight security team was. One witness said this type of bomb could have caused a lot more damage if certain things were added and a lot of campers are fearful of another attack.
Thankfully no one was injured last night but police investigators were on scene for 2 hours to identify the chemicals used and to try to find out who is responsible. The suspect car is said to be a Silver 4-Door Sedan from the late 80s-mid 90s and possibly a Toyota or Nissan and if you have any more information, you are encouraged to contact the Portland Police Department at 207-874-8575. #OccupyMaine Media Team
