Police are seeking a suspect accused of setting a series of arsons caught on surveillance cameras at a place of worship in central Hamilton.
Investigators say the man set small fires on consecutive evenings at Kingdom Hall on Delaware Avenue near Gladstone.
The first was last Thursday at a rear door of the building around 10:30 p.m. when the suspect set a black reusable shoulder bag on fire.
He’s also accused of spray-painting the exterior of the facility.
The second fire was ignited inside a yellow grocery bag on Friday at the front entrance of the building around 9:30 p.m.
In both instances the man was seen on camera fleeing the scene on foot.
The suspect is believed to be of medium height and weight for a man wearing a black hooded sweatshirt with a Hockey Canada emblem and dark pants.
Anyone with information is asked to reach out to Hamilton Police or Crime Stoppers.
