Central Islip, NY - August 20th, 2014 - Suffolk County Police yesterday arrested a Central Islip man for attempting to set three vehicles on fire in the parking lot of a bar in Commack earlier this year.

Alexander Rivera, 35, was seen pouring gasoline over three vehicles in the parking lot of The Scene Restaurant and Lounge, located at 70 Motor Parkway in Commack, on March 16, 2014 at 2:40 a.m. Rivera, of Hoffman Lane, fled the scene after being observed by a witness who was also in the parking lot at that time.

Arson Section detectives arrested Rivera last night at 8:06 p.m. and charged him with two counts of Attempted Arson. Rivera is being held at the Third Precinct and is scheduled to be arraigned today at First District Court in Central Islip.

A criminal charge is an accusation. A defendant is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty.
