GRANITE BAY (CBS13) – A 15-year-old Granite Bay boy was arrested Thursday on four counts of attempted homicide in connection with a firebombing late Wednesday night, according to the Placer County Sheriff’s Office.
The boy, a sophomore at Granite Bay High School, went to a home on Bentwood Way in Granite Bay around 11:30 p.m. He threw a large rock through a window on the front of the house, and then threw a bottle containing a flammable liquid at the same window, which started a fire, the sheriff’s office said.
The family of four inside the home did not wake up from the sound of breaking glass but they were awakened a short time later by a smoke alarm, the sheriff’s office said. The homeowners were able to extinguish the flames.
The sheriff’s office and South Placer Fire immediately launched an arson investigation, which led detectives to the boy’s nearby home.
He was interviewed and transported to Placer County Juvenile Hall in Auburn on the attempted homicide charges, plus a charge of throwing an incendiary or destructive device.
