Columbia City bank damaged by Molotov cocktail

A Columbia City bank was damaged overnight when someone threw a Molotov cocktail at the side of the building, according to Seattle police.

When employees arrived this morning around 9:45 they discovered a broken window and burn marks on the side of the building at Rainier Avenue South and South Edmunds Street.

A police account of the incident says it appears that the gasoline-filled bottle struck and scorched the side of the bank, but did not cause significant damage.

The account did not name the bank.

In early January, someone left an incendiary device at a Chase Bank branch at 7100 Martin Luther King Jr. Way S. The device, which was described as two bottles wrapped in tape in a box with wires, failed to ignite.
