Arsonist throws Molotov cocktail inside Brighton Beach supermarket, police say

A masked man tossed two Molotov cocktails in a Central Asian grocery store in Brighton Beach and fled the scene on a motorcycle earlier this week, police said Friday night.

Surveillance footage shows the man entering Tashkent Supermarket, at 713 Brighton Beach Ave., on Wednesday, Nov. 29 at about 2:30 a.m. and throwing two bottles, one flaming, down the store’s main aisle early Wednesday.

An accomplice, wearing a white and black helmet, waited outside the shop on his motorcycle, police said. The two men fled on the vehicle.

No one was injured in the attack and store employees extinguished the flames themselves, authorities said.

The suspect was last seen wearing all black, including a hoodie, jeans and a mask. The motorcyclist was attired in a black hoodie, red shirt, black jeans and black shoes.

Anyone with information can call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 800-577-TIPS.
