SAN DIEGO (AP) — Police in San Diego have arrested a man they believe deliberately rammed a car into the side of a defense contractor’s building and set the vehicle on fire.

Nobody was hurt in Wednesday’s 2:30 a.m. crash at Raytheon.

KGTV-TV says firefighters found an empty, burning Toyota Prius partially wedged into the side of the building. The fire was quickly doused and damage to the building is said to be minimal.

Police later arrested 36-year-old Daniel Mackinnon of San Diego.


It’s unclear whether he has an attorney.

Authorities say the Prius was stolen.

There’s no word on a motive for the attack but the FBI and other federal agencies are investigating.
