James Trainor, 36, has been arrested for allegedly throwing a brick at the Roanoke office’s front door, shattering a glass panel. Trainor faces a felony property damage charge.
The incident occurred before office hours, at around 7:30 a.m., and no one was injured, the police and the senator’s office both said.
“Thankfully due to the early hour no one was in the office at the time,” the senator’s spokeswoman, Rachel Cohen, told HuffPost in a statement.
She said Warner, a former Virginia governor, “is extremely grateful for the quick and professional response of the Roanoke Police Department, which is investigating.”
Police officials told HuffPost that the motive for the attack is still unknown, but authorities do not believe that it was random.
Warner, the ranking Democrat on the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, has been a key player in the Senate intelligence panel’s investigation into Russian efforts to subvert the 2016 presidential election.
