New York City police continued to hunt a serial arsonist Sunday suspected of setting fire to seven homes since early November, while neighbors in the ravaged area say the firebug – who has taunted cops with coded riddles – is targeting only Jewish residents.
According to DNAinfo.com, The NYPD Arson and Explosive Squad is investigating the fires, which began on Nov. 8 in the Forest Hills, Queens, neighborhood. There have been a total of seven fires since then, four of which investigators have deemed suspicious.
The fires all broke out at buildings that were under construction or being renovated.
Police have released video footage of the suspected arsonist who, based on the video, was described at about 5 feet, 6 inches tall, trim, and wearing a hooded sweatshirt -- “looking like a ninja,” according to authorities, the news site reported
