CLAREMONT, N.H. (AP) - Planned Parenthood officials say a Claremont clinic that police say was badly damaged by a hatchet-wielding juvenile will be closed for three more weeks while contractors work to repair extensive damage.

Jennifer Frizzell, vice president for public policy for Planned Parenthood Northern New England, tells The Valley News (https://bit.ly/1iH81a8 ) the vandal caused tens of thousands of dollars in damage to the interior of the office on Oct. 21.

Police said the juvenile used the hatchet to destroy computers, plumbing fixtures, phones and medical equipment inside the clinic.

Authorities are investigating whether the vandalism is linked to the word “murderer” that was spray-painted on the same building Oct. 6.

Frizzell says it’s unclear whether costs will exceed six figures. She says officials are hoping restitution can pay for the repairs.
