FBI arrests suspect in synagogue fire bombing

Authorities have arrested a man suspected in the firebomb attack of a synagogue in New Jersey over the weekend.

U.S. Attorney Philip Sellinger identified the suspect as Nicholas Malindretos of Clifton, N.J., in statement on Wednesday evening. He praised federal, state and local law enforcement for working swiftly together.

The 26-year-old, who is accused of throwing a Molotov cocktail at the Temple Ner Tamid in Bloomfield, is charged with "one count of attempted use of fire to damage and destroy a building used in interstate commerce."

"The defendant is alleged to have gone to a synagogue in the middle of the night and maliciously attempted to damage and destroy it using a firebomb," Sellinger said.

"We will continue to devote whatever resources are necessary to keep our Jewish community and all New Jersey residents safe," he added.
