Commercial real estate developer Jonathan Resnick was the target of a Molotov cocktail in the early hours of Wednesday morning, according to the Lower Hudson Journal. Resnick, president of development firm Jack Resnick & Sons, discovered his living room ablaze at 12:14 a.m., after an unidentified intruder scaled his Rye property’s stone wall and hurled a plastic bottle of flammable liquid into his house. Police have not identified any suspects, nor have they established a motive. Joseph Verille, a lieutenant with the Rye police, said that his precinct is taking the incident seriously. “That kind of thing isn’t a random act,” Verille said. [The Journal]
