Law enforcement sources said a man was arrested after he fired a Molotov cocktail at a Brooklyn restaurant and then hit a worker with a “sharp object.”
Sources said Alistair Mangal, 38, got into an argument with staff at NR Rock Daily in Bed-Stuy shortly before 8 a.m.
Mangal left, but then returned to the breakfast place on Rue Nostrand with a gas bomb and started a small fire, according to the sources.
The sources said that the workers of the Deli restaurant managed to put out the flames, but Mangal then took out a sharp object and injured a 23-year-old employee by the hand.
Police sources stated that the victim sustained minor injuries, and the alleged arsonist was arrested without further incidents.
