Do you recognise this attempted arson suspect?

Can you identify the man above? If you can the Burnaby RCMP wants to hear from you.
On April 1, 2020, just before 3:00 p.m., this man is alleged to have tried to set fire to a home in the 5000-block of Manor Street in Burnaby. He allegedly doused the house with a liquid and attempted to ignite it with a lighter.
The suspect is described as:
• Caucasian;
• Medium build;
• Short brown wavy hair;
• Brown beard;
• Wearing a black jacket with yellow safety stripes;
• Black pants, and
• Red running shoes.

The suspect is believed to be related to a black BMW, unknown year.
The suspect has what appears to be a heart tattoo on his right hand and a possible sleeve tattoo starting on his left hand, says Corporal Mike Kalanj. We are confident that someone out there knows who this man is and we are asking for those people to come forward and speak with us.

Burnaby RCMP is asking anyone who may be able to identify the suspect in the photo or may have information about this incident to contact the Burnaby RCMP at 604-646-9999. If you wish to make an anonymous report please contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS or
