BRIDGEPORT, Conn. — Bridgeport police are seeking help in identifying the suspects in two attempted arsons at Sunshine Kitchen on Park Avenue in the past week.

Bridgeport posted a video on YouTube from the two incidents.

The first part of the video shows an incident from the night of Jan.. 9. A suspect in a dark hoodie and carrying a gas container walks up and starts a fire on the building's exterior.

The second part of the video is from midday Jan. 12, as two suspects enter the store.

One suspect in a black jacket talks to the store clerk while the second suspect, in a gray Nike hoodie, pours a liquid on a shelf in the back of the store and starts a fire. The two then flee on Park Avenue.

Anyone who has information about either of the two incidents or the suspects is asked to contact Detective Laura Azevedo-Rasuk or Sgt. Kim Nikola at 203-581-5215 or the Bridgeport Police Department TIPS line at 203-576-TIPS (8477).
