Man charged with attempted arson of Hyannis restaurant

A Cape Cod man was charged with attempting to burn a building after he was identified as the culprit who tried to torch a Brazilian restaurant in Hyannis, and then later threw a brick through the restaurant’s window, police said.

Lucas B. Penna, 43, is slated to be arraigned in Barnstable District Court today on charges of attempting to burn a building, willful injury to a building, and possession of an infernal machine, a Molotov cocktail. Penna is a national of Brazil who is living in the United States on a visa, and Immigration and Customs Enforcement has now placed a detainer for his arrest, for possible deportation, authorities said.
