Suspect Arrested in Attempted Bombing of Boston Police Vehicle

A homeless man suspected of placing a burning propane tank next to a Boston police vehicle last week has been arrested. 

Asim Kieta, 42, was taken into custody on Saturday evening although a motive for the incident has not yet been discerned. 

Police Commissioner William Evans said of the event, "I think it goes to some of the hatred out there, whether it is because of what has happened across the country, or whether this was personal with him, because he has had some encounters with police."
