TRIPwire, 13 August 2019

On 5 August 2019, a 55-year-old female suspect attempted to set fire to an occupied house with a Molotov cocktail-type improvised incendiary device (IID). The woman filled a bottle with gasoline and lit a cloth from the open end, then threw the device through the front window of a residence. The IID broke the first pane of glass but failed to shatter the second. Two adults and a baby were in the residence at the time of the attack, but no injuries were reported.
