FWPD releases photos of man identified as suspect in Hulen Mall fires

- Police are still looking for the man they say lit two Molotov cocktails in different stores in a Fort Worth mall.

The Fort Worth Police Department released surveillance images of the suspect at the Hulen Mall.

He appears to be wearing a hat, long-sleeved shirt and long baggy pants. The car he got away in was also captured by surveillance cameras but police did not provide any information about it.

Witnesses said the man caught clothing on fire in the Dillard’s and Sears stores in the mall on Friday and then ran off.

Employees at both stores saw what happened and were able to put the fires out with fire extinguishers. No one was hurt and the fires only caused minor damage.

Authorities swept the mall late Friday afternoon but did not seem to find anything else that was suspicious.

It’s not yet clear why the man lit the Molotov cocktails.
