Man sets fire to memorial for slain Virginia teen Nabra Hassanen

A South Carolina man has been arrested for setting fire to a memorial for slain Virginia teen Nabra Hassanen.

Washington D.C. residents gathered at the capital's Dupont Circle on Tuesday night to grieve the 17-year-old, who was walking back to her mosque in Fairfax County when she was attacked and possibly sexually assaulted by a road rage driver.

D.C. police confirmed to the Daily News that officers were called Wednesday morning after fire was set to the memorial at a fountain.

A spokeswoman said that Jonathan Solomon, a 24-year-old from South Carolina, had been arrested just after 10 a.m., and added that “at this time, the incident does not appear to be motivated by bias.”
