The Anchorage Police Department is asking for help to find the man who allegedly tried to burn down a home.

Police say they received a report of arson around 12:55 a.m. on Oct. 16. A home security video shared by APD captured the suspect as he walked up to the house on Mona Avenue in Tulin Park Estates. The area is off Lake Otis Parkway, south of O'Malley Road.

“He is a white adult male who appears to be elderly,” police wrote in a Facebook post. “The vehicle appears to be an older gray or silver Subaru or Toyota Station Wagon.”

The family inside the house did not want to talk on camera. Family members did say they were home asleep when the incident happened, and they do not recognize the suspect.

Police ask people with information or who recognize the man in the video to contact the case detective via email or call 311.
