Police say man threw Molotov cocktail

A 25-year-old man is under arrest, accused of throwing a Molotov cocktail through the window of a residence on Dell Drive on Sunday night.

Robert Holt was taken into custody shortly after the incident by the Thomson Police Department.

Mr. Holt, who has been arrested on assorted charges in the past few months, faces charges of arson in the first-degree, four counts of aggravated assault and possession of an explosive device, according to police records.

All the charges are felonies.

No one was reported injured when the explosive device was thrown through a front window in the 500 block of Dell Drive.

Georgia Insurance and Safety Fire Commissioner John W. Oxendine said in a prepared statement from his office in Atlanta that Mr. Holt mistook the home for one where he thought his estranged girlfriend was living. Mr. Oxendine said it was the wrong house.

Thomson Fire Department responded to a fire call at the residence, where damage was reported.

State Fire Marshal Investigator Michael Crosby later was called to the home. Mr. Holt is being held without bond in McDuffie County Law Enforcement Center.
