CLEVELAND -- A suspect in an explosion at a California synagogue has been charged in federal court with fleeing to avoid prosecution.

An affidavit filed in U.S. District Court in Los Angeles charges 60-year-old Ron Hirsch with flight to avoid prosecution for damaging or destroying a building. The affidavit says Hirsch, also known as Israel Fisher, violated federal law when he traveled from California to Ohio sometime between April 7 and Monday, when he was arrested in suburban Cleveland Heights.

The explosion Thursday near Chabad House Lubavitch of Santa Monica shattered windows and punched a hole in the synagogue. The U.S. Attorney's Office in Cleveland says Hirsch is scheduled to appear in court Wednesday.

Authorities did not say whether he had an attorney.
