A 22-year-old Toronto man has been charged with arson and attempted murder after police say a home in the city’s north end was intentionally set on fire with four people inside.
Emergency crews responded to reports of several fires in the Grandravine Drive and Sentinel Road area Sunday just after 3 p.m.
Const. Jenniferjit Sidhu said several residents reported a snowmobile, a car and a school bus at nearby Lamberton Public School were deliberately set on fire.
Police said the car fire quickly spread from the driveway to the house and the suspect was known to those inside. The house suffered significant exterior damage.
George Sebou was arrested Sunday and charged with four counts of attempted murder, two counts of arson having disregard for human life, four counts of arson causing property damage, possession of incendiary material for arson, uttering threats and assault. He was scheduled to appear in a Toronto court Monday.
