Police say they’ve arrested a suspect in connection with two intentionally set fires at a Philadelphia home.
Leonard Monroe was charged Thursday with arson, aggravated assault, causing catastrophe and other offenses.
Police say the 24-year-old set fire Nov. 9 and Dec. 1 to a home on Coulter Street in the city’s Germantown neighborhood.
In both instances the attacker placed a Molotov cocktail or other incendiary devices inside the front door.
Eight people escaped the Dec. 1 fire and firefighters were able to extinguish it within minutes.
Police say they’re also looking at Monroe for a fire at the same residence Sunday that damaged a Christmas tree and gifts.
Monroe is jailed on $1 million bail. He’s due in court Jan. 16. The public defender’s office didn’t immediately return a message.
