Detectives are appealing for public assistance to identify a man aged in his 70s after two cars were set alight in Sydney’s eastern beaches last year.
Police say that at around 11pm on Saturday, November 14, 2020, emergency serves were called to a house on Suttie Road, Bellevue Hill, following reports two cars were on fire.
“Upon arrival, emergency services found a Volkswagen Golf and a Porsche SUV alight. Police have been told the Volkswagen caught alight in the driveway of the home before the fire spread to the SUV in a neighbouring property,” NSW Police said in a statement today.
Fire and Rescue NSW extinguished the blaze, which caused significant damage to the vehicles. No one was injured in the incident.
“Detectives from Eastern Suburbs Police Area Command established a crime scene and are investigating the incident, which is being treated as suspicious.”
“As inquiries continue, investigators have released images of a man who they would like to speak to. The man is described as being of Caucasian appearance, approximately 70-years-old,” police said.
The man is depicted wearing a green camouflage bucket hat, a black jacket, a blue t-shirt, khaki green pants, khaki-coloured shoes, and black sunglasses.
