Warren Police tracked down and arrested a man they say set fire to a home in the city over the weekend.

A person living along the 1400 block of North Park Avenue called dispatchers Saturday afternoon saying she saw a man running from a neighboring home just after it caught fire.

Police say they spotted a man fitting the suspect's description walking through a backyard on Hall Street.

An officer said the suspect, 48-year-old Robert Armstrong of Warren, had an ash-like substance on his hands and jacket, and a lighter in his pocket.

Armstrong was booked into the county jail and charged with one felony count of arson.

Warren Fire investigators say someone had set fire to drapes in the unoccupied home. Firefighters say they put out the flames quickly.
