“Surveillance video shows four suspects came to this street in a black car. They wore similar clothes and concealed their faces. They used combustion improver. It’s clearly a case of arson.”
All four suspects have been detained. The four men, who were selling parking lots for a nearby gated community, admitted they intended to force car owners to buy parking spaces within the residential compound.
