Melbourne, Australia- A man on a bicycle, with tattoos and wearing a distinctive Kingz-Meerkatsu BJJ is wanted by police after rashguard after he threw a molotov cocktail at a Melbourne hotel’s parking.
The man threw the Molotov cocktail on the morning of January 24 which caused a small fire.
Victoria Police spokeswoman said:
“A man has entered the first level of the Canterbury Rd hotel car park and threw the device just after 8am,”
“The man then fled the area on a bicycle.”
Police released images of the man on Wednesday:
In his early 40s, of caucasian appearance, short dark hair and a tattoo sleeve on his right arm.
He was riding a black mountain bike wearing a distinctive Meerkatsu Kingz BJJ rashguard top.
Melbourne police are currently questioning the Melbourne BJJ/Grappling community for clues as this type of rashguard is only worn by grapplers..
BJJ champion Andre Galvao famously wore this rashguard:
