LINDENHURST - Police are searching for whoever threw a Molotov cocktail at a car outside of a North Lindenhurst home overnight.

Authorities say the incident happened at around 4:30 a.m., damaging a vehicle that was in a driveway on North Clinton Avenue and ignited flames that spread to the lawn.

A man who identified himself as "Mike" lives in the home where the incident happened. He says the firebombing sounded like a missile hitting the car.

Some neighbors say they have often seen police coming to the home. "Mike" says he has no idea who would do something like this, or who was the target of the attack.
