Moment man threw liquid over a car before it was set alight in street argument
This is the moment a street row escalated - and a man threw liquid over a car before it was set alight. CCTV captured by a shocked homeowner shows two men walking towards a car - which locals say one of them owns. The other man is holding a jerry can and appears to throw liquid over the vehicle before setting it alight. The man with the can then punches the alleged owner, knocking him to the floor, and quickly walks away - leaving the car engulfed in flames. Locals said the incident, in Walton Street in Leicester, came after two men got into a row in a nearby restaurant, on March 8. Police and firefighters were called to the scene. No arrests have been made and police are appealing for information. A spokesperson for Leicestershire Police said: "Police were called to Walton Street in Leicester shortly before 2pm on Wednesday (8 March) following a report that a car was alight. "It was established that the fire had been started deliberately. "While attending, officers identified and spoke to the car’s owner, who was not inside the vehicle at the time. "Enquiries are continuing. "No arrests have been made and anyone with information regarding the incident is asked to call 101, quoting incident 299 of 8 March."
