Bend businesses targeted with attempted arson

A couple of Bend businesses were the target of arson early yesterday morning. Crews were called out to Enterprise Rent-A-Car around 4:30 yesterday morning. A second fire was reported at the nearby El Sancho restaurant about the same time. The suspect unsuccessfully tried to ignite numerous propane canisters at the restaurant.  When that didn’t work, he threw a concrete umbrella stand through one of the windows. At the car rental business, he attempted to light a propane tank, which did not ignite, but the deck caught fire. Over a thousand dollars in damages was done to each building. Surveillance video led police to 37-year-old Demetrios Tsitsilianos who was taken into custody near Hill and Hawthorne.
