And though it's difficult to tell for sure, it appears as if the suspect accidentally lit his or her own eyebrows and hoodie on fire in the process.
The suspect then immediately fled the scene in a red, mid-sized vehicle with one headlight out. A second suspect is believed to have been driving.
For real lol, looked like his hoodie caught fire too.— Monty (@colavs_29) January 28, 2020
At the time of the incident, on January 3, Vaughan Fire and Rescue Services attended and put out the fire, according to a news release.
"The Office of the Ontario Fire Marshall was also notified and the fire was determined to have been intentionally set," the release states.
All we know of the first suspect is that they were wearing dark clothing and carrying a gas can, and police are appealing to the community for assistance in identifying the suspects.
