MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) - Memphis police are searching for a man accused of setting a car on fire just days before the new year.

Memphis Fire Department responded to a car fire at Americas Best Value Inn at 3875 American Way shortly after 2 a.m. on December 30.

Video surveillance showed an unidentified man get out of a black car driven by another unknown person. The suspect then broke into the driver's side window of a 2008 Nissan Rogue, doused it inside and out with a flammable liquid and set the car on fire.

Afterwards, the man got back into the black sedan, and the suspects circled the hotel a few times before fleeing the scene.

Investigators ask anyone with information about the incident to call CrimeStoppers at (901) 528-CASH.
