NEW YORK -- (WPIX) -- The NYPD released footage of a man who they believe lit a Muslim tourist's blouse on fire in front of a luxury clothing store on Fifth Avenue last Saturday.
The 35-year-old victim, dressed in a traditional Muslim garb, was outside Valentino in midtown just before 9 p.m. when she says felt something warm on her left arm and noticed her blouse was on fire, police said.
She patted out the fire and saw a man standing next to her with a lighter in his hand, according to police.
The individual then walked away eastbound on East 54th Street. Surveillance video shows the alleged attacker in a black tank-top and dark-colored jeans.
The victim refused medical attention.
