Bronx woman accused of arson at New Rochelle bar
A Bronx woman faces charges for arson in New Rochelle.
Police arrested 32-year-old Freissy Batista-Pereya on Tuesday.
Investigators say the owner of Drake Main Cafe & Lounge says the suspect got in a fight with staff and left, but then came back with a gas can, poured it on the outside walls and entry, lit it and ran.
The bar owner put out the fire quickly and police say they found Batista-Pereya trying to get in an Uber.
No one was hurt, but Batista-Pereya faces charges for arson, reckless endangerment and criminal mischief.
