Police in the US Capitol said the man was warned Wednesday afternoon. Police said he was trying to light a Molotov cocktail when the suspect tried to throw it away. But the officers managed to stop him.

“Both of our officers have been treated for minor injuries. Thankfully, they will be okay,” he said.

The man also had an explosive device made of tequila bottles and oil-based accelerators, police said.
