The New York Police Department released a video on 13 September of a man they believe tried to set a Muslim woman on fire the day before the 15th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks. The 35-year-old woman was walking on 5th Avenue near 54th Street, window shopping, when she felt something warm on her arm, according to police. She noticed a man standing there with a lighter, who then fled the scene. The video from police shows the suspect fleeing the scene.
