Philadelphia investigators released new surveillance video Tuesday of an arsonist targeting a Mayfair business.

The video shows the suspect walking through a Sunoco parking lot then to the back of Owen's café on the 2800 block of Cottman Avenue.

A few minutes later, flames began shooting from the back of the building.

The April 18th fire caused significant damage to the building.

No one was hurt.

The suspect is described as a white male, with a thin build, wearing a dark colored shirt with a logo on the left side of his chest and a design on the back, and long tan pants.

Anyone with information should contact police at 215-686-TIPS (8477).
