Montreal police are looking for two suspects connected to three Molotov-cocktail attacks on restaurants in the Saint-Michel area last summer and fall.

The first incident took place early in the morning on Aug. 21, 2014 at Le Coin Latino restaurant on Saint-Michel Boulevard. Police said the window was broken, and a Molotov cocktail was thrown in.

Two suspects identified in that incident are described as black males between the ages of 16 and 30 with slim builds. One of the men was wearing a dark hoodie, black pants, white shoes and a scarf covering his face. The other was wearing a grey hoodie, grey jogging pants and black shoes.    

The two other attacks targeted another restaurant, Anh Hong, located in the same strip mall as Le Coin Latino.

In both incidents, on Nov. 15 and Nov. 22, someone broke a window, tossing in a lit bottle containing an accelerant.

In both those incidents, the suspect wore a tuque and covered his face with a scarf.

Anyone with information is asked to call Montreal police or Info-Crime at 514- 393-1133.
