Angry man ‘set parked cars ablaze’

A man accused of setting alight cars to vent his frustration after his wife left him has been arrested for arson.

The suspect, surnamed Yang, is alleged to have first struck in August after driving by his residential complex in Fengxian District.

Prosecutors said he was upset because he and his wife had quarreled and he wanted to do something to release his anger.

He set fire to a parked vehicle outside the apartment building, said prosecutors, adding that in September he burnt two more cars as he remained frustrated and angry. He faces 10 years in jail, the prosecutors said.
