A man who allegedly threw a Molotov cocktail at an occupied LAPD community police station in Canoga Park over the weekend has been arrested, officials announced Monday.

The incident occurred about 12:55 a.m. Sunday, when a man identified by authorities as Jonathon Rosin walked up to the front doors of the Topanga Community Police Station, KTLA reports.

Rosin allegedly lit a glass bottle that contained a flammable liquid and threw it at the front window of the station, Los Angeles Police Department officials said in a news release.

“Upon contact with the window the bottle shattered and ignited the flammable liquid,” according to the news release. The flames were put out by a supervisor.

Officers then chased Rosin down the street and he was eventually taken into custody.

Rosin, 24, of Los Angeles, was booked on suspicion of igniting an explosive and a misdemeanor warrant. He is being held on $501,000 bail, police said.
