A wild video showed a man hurling a Molotov cocktail into a Brooklyn deli on Saturday. Joel Mangal, 38, was arrested for the incident. He reached for another bomb but was intercepted by a witness.
FDNY said the reason Mangal hurled the bomb was he had an argument with the staff.
In a statement announcing the arrest on Sunday, the FDNY said one person received medical treatment for non-life-threatening injuries.
“Fortunately, there was no loss of life here,” Fire Commissioner Daniel A. Nigro said. “The investigative work from the Explosives and Arson Task Force comprised of our Fire Marshals, the NYPD, and ATF, led to the timely arrest of this suspect who threatened the safety of our communities by using such a cruel and destructive device.”
