VIDEO: A family in Hamtramck is speaking out after their house was set on fire not once, but twice. "It was horrific. No one wants to see their home being on fire," said the victim who lives there. "We check the camera and realize it’s the same guy." Police want the public to take a close look at the man caught on camera before he returns to terrorize the family again. "We don’t recognize who it is in the footage that’s what we’re desperately seeking help for," she said. The family does not want to be identified but they say their security camera caught this man in the act last January at their house - and then again on March 13th. In both cases, the suspect comes during the early morning hours and his MO is the same - but in the most recent incident, he appeared to injure himself. His arm or wrist appeared to catch on fire.
