CCTV image released in arson investigation

Leicestershire Police News Feed - 3 hours 59 min ago

Detectives investigating after a house was deliberately set alight in Leicester have released a CCTV image of a man they would like to trace.

Between 10.20pm and 10.45pm on Wednesday night (16 January), the front door of a house in the Meadowsweet Road area was set alight.

The fire caused a small amount of damage to the door before the occupants, who were inside at the time, managed to extinguish the fire.

Enquiries with the fire service and CCTV investigations have confirmed a man approached the property before pouring petrol on the door and setting it alight.

Officers are treating the incident as arson and have released an image of a man they would like to trace in connection with the incident. A black saloon car was also seen close to the address between these times which may also be linked.

Detective Constable Matthew Garside, the investigating officer, said: “The family are understandably upset and extremely lucky that those inside didn’t sustain any injury.

“This was a dangerous act which could have had far worse consequences and a different outcome had the fire had spread further within the property.

“There is a possibility that the man responsible sustained burns to his face and this is something I would ask people to be aware of. Has a work colleague turned up with such injuries which were not easily explained or perhaps you have seen a neighbour with facial burns which have made you suspicious? If you have any information which could help our investigation, please contact us.

“Alternatively if you saw anything suspicious in the surrounding area of Meadowsweet Road which could be linked to this incident please get in touch with me.”
