Video Captures Man Throwing Molotov Cocktail Into Brooklyn Deli

Early on Wednesday morning, a man asked the clerk in a 24-hour mini-mart in Sunset Park if he could pay for his items later. The clerk refused to give him store credit, so obviously the man had no choice but to come back and set the building on fire. Now police have released surveillance video of the suspect waiting outside the shop on Fort Hamilton Parkway and hurling a Molotov cocktail through an open door. The business was engulfed in flames and the clerk’s jacket and hair caught on fire, but thankfully, he only suffered minor injuries. Police described the suspect as a Hispanic man, 30-40 years old, 5’8” to 5’10”, wearing sunglasses and a dark hooded sweatshirt.
