Suspects Wanted for Torching Clifton Business


Clifton Detectives are looking to question a pair for a commercial arson last month.

Police said that on June 30, an officer was on patrol in the area of Clifton and Paulison avenues when at approximately 12:30 a.m., he observed heavy smoke and flames coming from a nearby building.

According to police, the officer subsequently confirmed that the source of the fire was  721 Clifton Avenue - a medical office building. 

The Clifton Fire Department was dispatched to the scene and eventually extinguished the fire.

Police said a further investigation led to the determination that the cause of the fire was the result of arson.  

The attached photographs are believed to be the suspects arriving in the area just before the incident.

One of the suspects is wearing a Spiderman mask, while the other assailant is wearing what appears to be a character mask of some sort. 

Anyone with information as to the identity of the suspects and/or information related to this investigation are asked to contact the Clifton Police Department Detective Division @ 973-470-5908.

Callers can remain anonymous.
