A 33-year-old woman is facing several charges in connection to an alleged arson incident in the parking lot of a fast food restaurant in east London earlier this week.
London police responded to the scene just before midnight Monday for reports of a vehicle fire in the parking lot of the McDonald’s near Hamilton Road and Highbury Avenue.
Details remain scarce, but police said investigators determined a woman had lit a newspaper and tossed it under two parked vehicles.
The vehicles were unoccupied at the time and no injuries were reported, but one of the vehicles sustained minor damage in the incident.
On Thursday, police announced that a 33-year-old woman had been charged in the case. She faces three charges, including arson causing damage to property, attempt to commit an indictable offence and failure to comply with a recognizance.
She is expected to appear in court Thursday.
Anyone with information about the incident is asked to contact police or Crime Stoppers.
