Two men arrested after throwing Molotov cocktails into Revelstoke home

Molotov cocktail attack

A Revelstoke resident's home was firebombed early Thursday. 

Just before 3 a.m., the occupant of the home was awoken when Molotov cocktails were thrown into the home.

The resident successfully extinguished the flames before the fire spread.

They then called the police to help catch the offenders.

"Our front line RCMP officers responded to the scene and gathered evidence," says Cpl. Jesse O'Donaghey, with the RCMP's Southeast District. "As a result of the investigation ... two men were taken into police custody without incident, after they allegedly returned to the arson scene approximately an hour later."

The two Revelstoke men, 36 and 34, are facing potential charges and remain in police custody.

The crime scene is still being examined, and anyone with information is asked to contact Revelstoke RCMP at 250-837-5255.
