VIDEO: Police seek arson suspects in Port Richmond car fire
Philadelphia police on Wednesday released surveillance video of two arson suspects accused of setting a car on fire early Monday morning in Port Richmond.
Investigators said two men were caught on camera on the 2800 block of Cedar Street shortly after 3:30 a.m.
