The FBI on Monday evening said that a man believed to be a suspect in an explosion that hit the Chabad House in Santa Monica, California last week has been arrested in Ohio.

Ron Hirsch, who was reportedly on his way to New York, is believed to be "extremely dangerous." He was apparently seen getting off a bus in Denver, Colorado last Thursday hours after the attack, however his exact movements after that were not immediately clear.

An FBI spokesperson said in a statement that "an individual believed to be Ron Hirsch... was taken into custody in Cleveland Heights, Ohio."
