(Scroll down for video) Police are looking to arrest a man who planted and detonated a bomb inside a public toilet, police in Oregon said.

Aloha Police released a sketch on Monday, of the suspect who placed the bomb that injured a woman inside a portable toilet.

The woman was injured in a park on Saturday, after the bomb exploded inside the toilet, police said. Two other bombs exploded in nearby mailboxes later that day.

The first explosion was reported around 12:30 p.m., at Arnold Park, near the International School of Beaverton, located at 17770 SW Blanton Street. The victim, 40-year-old Kari Finch of Spokane, injured her head while inside the toilet.

She was taken to a hospital with injuries that are not life threatening. Finch said that doctors had to put two staples in her head to help repair the damage.

No one was injured in the other two blasts. Police said that the bombs were probably made at home, with chemicals that are available in grocery stores.

They believe the three incidents were related.
