Jehovah’s Witness Hall Targeted by Arsonist for a 3rd Time

| January 4, 2012

For the third time in two weeks, a local Jehovah's Witness congregation hall was the target of an arsonist, but this time a passerby was able to get a description of the suspect.

Firefighters were called to the hall located in the 2000-block of Adams Avenue around 12:30 a.m. Tuesday after someone noticed the fence outside the building was cut, and some of the lettering on a wall was damaged.

The passerby waited for the suspect to come outside, and then chased the man, but he was able to escape, authorities said.

The suspect is described as a man standing 5'8" to 6' tall, wearing dark clothing, and a white hood or mask, said San Diego Fire spokesperson Maurice Luque.

Once fire crews entered the building, they found the insides had been doused with gasoline and there were matches nearby, but there was no fire, Luque said.
