A felony arrest warrant has been issued for a Michigan abortion clinic doctor for allegedly running over a pro-life activist outside of the clinic.

Mark Zimmerman, a pro-life activist, was hit by a car on the morning of June 23 while in the parking lot of the Women’s Center of Saginaw in Flint, Michigan. Zimmerman’s attorney, Robert J. Dunn, said Zimmerman was there hoping to “engage pregnant women on their way to the clinic to see if they’re open to waiting and perhaps seeking assistance and counseling and, basically, not going through with the abortion procedure they have scheduled.”

Dunn alleged that an OBGYN at the clinic pulled into the parking lot, “plowed his car right into (Zimmerman) then backed it up off him.” The assailant allegedly then got out of his car “calmly” and went into the clinic, without acknowledging Zimmerman. Zimmerman was taken to the hospital with a broken left tibia, and Saginaw Township police did not make any initial arrests at the scene.

The alleged assailant has not yet been publicly identified by police, but Live Action News reported him to be Theodore Roumell, a doctor at the clinic who was charged with a similar assault 11 years ago in Wayne County. In April 2012, Roumell was charged for “striking Pro-Life Michigan Director Lynn Mills with a vehicle outside an abortion clinic in Livonia.” The felony warrant against the accused attacker was issued on July 21 and is for one count of assault with a deadly weapon, an offense that carries a four-year sentence.

Dunn said that Zimmerman will pursue a civil lawsuit against his alleged attacker, unless a settlement is reached before filing the suit.

Friends of Zimmerman started a fundraising campaign on the platform GiveSendGo, with a goal of $40,000 to cover Zimmerman’s medical expenses. As of noon on July 26, the campaign had raised $11,390 of its goal.
