Man Arrested for Threatening NAF Member

A Dallas man is facing federal charges for threatening NAF member Southwestern Women’s Surgery Center in Dallas, TX. Erlyndon Joseph Lo, 27, went to the Plano federal courthouse last Friday and filed a court document saying that at noon that day, he was planning to go to the clinic and “use deadly force…,” according to court documents. Lo was arrested by the FBI on Saturday and remains in custody.

“We won’t tolerate threats to clinics,” said Mark White, spokesman for the Dallas FBI. “We acted swiftly to ensure that no one was injured and that no act of violence actually did take place.”

Lo has been charged with one felony count of communicating a threat via an instrument of interstate commerce and one misdemeanor violation of the Freedom of Access to Clinic Entrances (FACE) Act. If convicted, he faces up to six years in prison.
