Texas State Sen. Wendy Davis’ office was firebombed with at least one Molotov cocktail on Tuesday, causing no injuries, the Star-Telegram reported.

Police in Fort Worth, Texas, are searching for the arson suspect, who escaped despite being chased by a maintenance man who witnessed the attack. Police suspect the attacker of throwing as many as two of the firebombs into the Democrat’s third-floor office, the Star-Telegram reports.

While no damage is reported to the office, the attack damaged the doorway.

The Star-Telegram reported that Davis’ communications director, Anthony Spangler, “said that a staffer heard a large thud at the door and was met at the door by waist-high flames. One staffer escaped the fire while the other put the fire out with a fire extinguisher.”

Davis was not in the office at the time of the attack.
