The FBI is seeking the public’s help in apprehending a suspect in a 30-year-old domestic terrorism incident at Kennedy International Airport.

Donna Joan Borup, believed to be between 59 and 64 years old, is wanted for riot, assault on a police officer and unlawful flight to avoid prosecution.

Borup is suspected of participating in the violent disruption of an anti-apartheid demonstration at JFK on Sept. 26, 1981. During the ensuing riot, she allegedly threw an acidic substance into the eyes of Port Authority Police Officer Evan Goodstein, leaving him partially blind.

At the time she was a member of the May 19th Communist Organization. She was arrested with accomplices in 1982 and was released on bail pending her trial in Queens  County court, where she failed to appear.

The Port Authority did not return calls seeking comment.

Borup is described as Caucasian, 5 feet 4 to 5 feet 6 inches tall, and weighing between 160 and 170 pounds with brown or greying hair. She may wear glasses and baggy clothes. Borup was born in South Amboy, NJ, and has ties to Philadelphia and the Horsham, Penn. area.

She has worked as a graphic designer and in silk screening, and is thought to be very intelligent with a photographic memory. She is considered armed and dangerous.

Anyone with information on her whereabouts is asked to contact the FBI at (212) 384-1000. The agency says tipsters may remain anonymous.
