This report is from a corporate news source, Denver ABC 7 News:

DENVER — A 20-year-old woman accused of hurling a fire bomb at Denver police officers during a protest last week faces two counts of attempted murder and other charges, prosecutors said Thursday.

Denver District Attorney Mitch Morrissey formally charged Amelia Nicol with the attempted murder counts along with two counts of assault and single counts of use of explosives, possession of explosives, arson, inciting a riot, resisting arrest and criminal mischief.

The charges state that on the night of May 6 Nicol threw an incendiary or explosive device at officers in a marked patrol car. The device exploded and burned, damaging the patrol car. The two officers in the car were not injured.

The charges also allege that Nicol fled the scene and as she was being taken into custody a short time later she spit on officers and resisted arrest, said district attorney spokeswoman Lynn Kimbrough.

The incident occurred at 11th Avenue and Kalamath Street during a march by people protesting law enforcement brutality cases in the Denver metro area.

“March against police terror!” said an announcement for the protest on the Facebook page of a group called Denver Black Anarchist Cross.

“The police are at war with the people. It’s time for the people to be at war with the police,” the release said.

The Facebook page showed a cartoon of a woman atop an oil drum surrounded by flames kicking a police officer in the chin, knocking his riot helmet off.

Nicol remained in Denver Jail Thursday. Her bond was set at $50,000.

Nicol was initially booked as Jane Doe, because she refused to provide her name, Kimbrough said.

Amelia has a courtdate set for Monday morning at 9:30am in Court Room 2100 in the Denver County Courthouse, 490 West Colfax
