Arson Attack at Incheon Factory Leaves Owner Assaulted and Property Destroyed
The quiet suburb of Gyeyang-gu in Incheon was thrown into chaos on September 27 when a devastating fire engulfed a factory, resulting in the complete destruction of one building and severe damage to two container buildings. The Incheon Fire Department rushed to the scene to combat the blaze and prevent it from spreading further.
In a shocking turn of events, the Incheon Gyeyang Police Station has announced the arrest of a suspect, identified as Mr. A, a man in his 60s. Mr. A stands accused of not only assaulting the factory owner, Mr. B, but also setting him on fire before fleeing the scene. The charges include arson of the Hyeonju building and special injury.
The horrific incident occurred at approximately 8:35 pm when Mr. B was viciously attacked by Mr. A using a blunt object at the machinery manufacturing plant located in Pyeong-dong, Gyeyang-gu, Incheon.
Devastation and Damage
The consequences of the arson attack were dire, with the main factory building, spanning an area of 266 m2 (80 pyeong), completely razed by the flames. Additionally, two container buildings were heavily compromised, as were vehicles parked in close proximity to the scene of the incident.
Mr. B has been receiving medical treatment for an abrasion on his forehead, sustained during the assault.
Background and Motive
Investigations by the police revealed that Mr. A was a former tenant who had previously rented a container in front of Mr. B’s factory, where he operated a machine repair business. The motive behind this violent act seems to stem from a dispute between the two over rental matters, specifically related to the removal of Mr. A’s container.
On the 28th of last month, law enforcement authorities arrested Mr. A at an apartment in Gyeyang-gu, bringing the investigation a step closer to completion.
A police officer involved in the case stated, “We will continue to pursue further inquiries with Mr. A and plan to hand him over to the prosecution within the next week.”
