Carlos-Espiritu-RCDA

A 23-year-old California man has been charged with attempted arson for the May 31 firebombing of the East Valley Republican Women Federated office in La Quinta, according to reports.

Carlos Espriu, of Palm Desert, allegedly broke windows with a baseball bat at the office before lighting three Molotov cocktails on fire.

Surveillance video captured the assailant coming back to the office after the bombs didn’t light – he threw them again causing the building to catch fire.

A video of the attack was posted on the office’s Gofundme page that raised almost $9,000 to help pay for increased security.
