Man arrested for Copenhagen car fires
Quote:21-year-old man arrested for Copenhagen car fires

Published: 25 Aug 2016 08:27 GMT+02:00

Copenhagen Police announced on Wednesday night that a 21-year-old man had been arrested in connection to a spate of car fires.

Over three consecutive nights this past weekend, a total of 24 vehicles were set ablaze at different locations throughout Copenhagen.

Police turned to the public for help and on Wednesday released still images from surveillance video of a man identified as a possible suspect. Shortly before 10pm, the man had been tracked down and arrested.

“The investigation surrounding the case continues. There will therefore not be any additional information given to the public for now,” a short police press release read.

Police spokesman Jens Møller Jensen told TV2 News that the 21-year-old man is a resident of Amager and is of ‘a different ethnicity than Danish’.

Police did not say if the man is suspected in all of the vehicle fires. Jensen told TV2 it is also too early to know if the man was working alone.

Copenhagen Police have been cautious about drawing parallels to Sweden, where at least 70 cars have been burnt in Malmö since July and car fires have occurred in cities including Stockholm, Gothenburg and Norrköping.

And who'd have thought anything like that.

RE: Man arrested for Copenhagen car fires
I was waiting to read the name of the suspect but it seems they're pulling a Sweden/UK now.
