Attempted Arson by Young Male Occurred Saturday Afternoon.
The Kenton Police Department report states that in the 100 block of Wayne Street a report of a young male wearing a bright or neon green shirt with no sleeves and short spiky blond hair was seen lighting a fire or standing by a fire that was set right beside a garage. The young male was further described as very skinny and to be around the age of 8 years old. The juvenile was confronted but fled the scene before law enforcement arrived.
The home owner and a neighbor were able to put out the fire with a garden hose but damage did occur to the siding of the garage. The incident remains under investigation.
