Cyclist Drew Ditlefsen told FOX 9 that someone threw a homemade fire bomb in his direction while he was riding his bicycle Wednesday on the Midtown Greenway, a popular Twin Cities path.
Ditlefsen said the flaming bottle was hurled down from the 15th Avenue bridge at about 1 p.m.
"I saw two people on top of the bridge and the entire width of the Greenway was in flames," he told FOX.
Ditlefsen, a frequent Greenway user who works at Peace Coffee, told the Star Tribune that the two initially appeared stunned and then one of the said, "Let's get out of here," and they ran. Ditlefsen told the Star Tribune he took a photo of the evidence and posted it to Facebook, and word quickly spread among the bicycling community.
Ditlefsen filed a report with the Minneapolis Police Department, and officers are looking for fingerprints on the remnants of the bomb, FOX reported.
