East Orange, Montclair Men Charged with Arson, Aggravated Assault for Allegedly Setting Fire to Hotel Room

East Orange New Jersey Arson AttorneysPolice recently arrested two Essex County NJ men accused of trying to set fire to a hotel room in Hasbrouck Heights, New Jersey.

Police officers from police departments in Hasbrouck Heights, Hackensack, Wood-Ridge, and Bergen County were called to the hotel after receiving a report of smoke coming from a room located on the fourth floor.

According to authorities, the smoke was heavy enough so that people at the hotel could smell it. However, the smoke did not set off any fire alarms.

When officers got to the scene, the two suspects allegedly used furniture to barricade themselves inside Room 431.

Police were eventually able to break down the door and enter the room.

Once officers were inside the room, they allegedly saw that the men had smashed a window and attempted to burn toilet paper.

The Hasbrouck Heights Fire Department showed up and made sure that there was no danger of the fire spreading to other parts of the hotel.

Meanwhile, the suspects were placed under arrest. One of the suspects was taken to Hackensack University Medical Center, where he received medical treatment. The other suspect was taken to police headquarters in Hasbrouck Heights.

Both suspects have been charged with a number of serious criminal offenses, including arson, aggravated assault, and resisting arrest.

One of the suspects is from Montclair NJ, while the other suspect is from East Orange NJ.

After being arrested and charged, the suspects are set to be transported to the Bergen County Jail in Hackensack. The men will each be held at the facility in lieu of $50,000 bail.
