London police have released an image which they say is of a second suspect being sought in connection with an arson investigation late last month at a residence in the city’s east end.
The incident occurred at a home in the 300-block of Kiwanis Park Drive, southeast of Highbury Avenue North and Dundas Street, around 3:20 a.m. on Feb. 24.
Police say they hope releasing the image will lead to the identification of the individual who was observed outside of the residence shortly before the fire.
One person, a 48-year-old Ottawa, Ont., man, has been charged with multiple counts of uttering threats, harassment, and breach of undertaking in a related investigation, but no one has been criminally charged yet for the arson itself, police said.
In a release late last month, police said the residence was occupied at the time, and the small fire was put out by police.
“First responders quickly determined that a small fire had been deliberately set to the residence,” police said.
No physical injuries were reported.
Anyone with information is asked to contact police at 519-661-5670 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).
