Wild video shows flaming molotov cocktails thrown at NYC grocery store



NEW YORK CITY (WPIX) – A great video shows a man tossing two Molotov cocktails at a Brooklyn grocery store on Saturday, October 30.

Joel Mangal, 38, has been arrested for the alleged use of improvised incendiary devices at the Nostrand Avenue grocery store, New York City Fire Marshal Daniel Nigro said. Firefighters arrived within three minutes.

Surveillance video from outside the store shows Mangal allegedly threw a molotov cocktail into the store. A Good Samaritan intervened when a second device ignited. This device fell on the sidewalk, creating a fire that spread to a parked car.

Video from inside the store shows an explosion of flames. A worker fell as he tried to escape with one of his shoes on fire.

“Fortunately, there was no loss of life here. The investigative work of the Explosives and Arson Task Force, made up of our Fire Marshals, NYPD and ATF, led to the swift arrest of this suspect who threatened the safety of our communities in using such a cruel and destructive device, ”said Nigro. “The FDNY will continue to work with local, state and federal partners to bring to justice those who use fire as a weapon against New Yorkers. “

Mangal has been charged with arson, assault, reckless endangerment, criminal possession of a weapon and criminal mischief.
