Thomas Condemns Attempted Attack on Cincinnati F.B.I. Office
August 12, 2022
Today, state Senator Cecil Thomas (D-Avondale) issued the following statement after an armed individual with ties to extremist groups attempted to break into the F.B.I.’s Cincinnati office this week:

“The reprehensible behavior from violent extremist groups and the politicians who condone it proves that words matter. It’s clear that harmful rhetoric is causing unwarranted attacks against the very people who have a duty to defend the law and keep people safe. This is shameful and must stop. Public officials should denounce misinformation, rather than planting seeds of violence.”

To report a threat to the FBI, call 513-421-4310 for the Cincinnati Office, 614-224-1183 for the Columbus Office 216-522-1400 for the Cleveland office. You can also submit tips online at
