1. Suspect Arrested for Setting Fire to Pride Flags at Harlem Gay Bar

The suspect caught on camera setting pride flags on fire in front of a Harlem gay bar has been arrested, police said Tuesday.

The suspect, 20-year-old Tyresse Singleton of Harlem, was charged with two counts of arson and two counts of criminal mischief as a hate crime after allegedly burning rainbow flags outside the Alibi Lounge on two separate occasions, according to police.

The suspect was caught on surveillance video on May 31, the day before Pride Month was set to begin in the city, taking his time lighting both flags outside the bar before fleeing the scene.

The flags were burned once again just after midnight on July 8, the suspect seen on camera that time as well.
