The Regina Police Service is asking for help from the public in solving a case of arson that occurred on the weekend. Fortunately, there was no one injured in this incident.
On Saturday, January 9, 2021, at approximately 3:23 a.m., police were called by Regina Fire and Protective Services to a residence in the 1500 block of Retallack Street. It appeared an unknown person or persons had thrown a simple incendiary device, known as a Molotov cocktail, at the back door of the residence, causing a small fire. There were two people asleep in the house at the time, but they woke when they heard the noise, and were able to douse the fire and call 9-1-1. Neither resident was harmed in this incident. Police have not yet identified suspects in this case and are hoping someone may have information that could help solve this crime.
Anyone who has information about this fire is asked to contact the Regina Police Service at 306-777-6500 or Regina Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477). The Regina Police Service thanks the media and the public for their assistance in this matter.
