Suitcase-bearing Man Apprehended at Capitol Building

Monday, 11 April 2005 12:00 AM

Police, some armed with assault rifles, gathered at the top of the Capitol steps but initially did not try to get closer to the man, who faced the Capitol from a plaza below its west entrance.

Officers then rushed the man from behind, as he was facing the Capitol building, tackled him, and dragged him away.

The man had been standing there for quite some time without moving, except to look at the police.

Reports say the man, of Asian descent, told someone he threatened to blow himself up.

Among the officials whose offices are on the west side of the Capitol looking out upon the National Mall are House Speaker Dennis Hastert, R-Ill., Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist, R-Tenn., and Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev.
