Police are seeking a man suspected of starting a fire at a closed business in Santa Cruz early Thursday morning. Shortly before 2:20 a.m. Thursday, a police officer was flagged down about a possible attempted arson in the 100 block of Church Street,
according to police.  A witness said a suspect ran by him saying “I’m sorry,” then rode off on a bicycle, police said.  After the witness noticed smoke coming from a small storage area at the business, the fire was extinguished and fire officials responded to
investigate. Police searched the area but did not find the suspect, described as a black man in his mid to late 30s who is about 6 feet tall, 180 pounds, and has black hair. He was wearing dark clothing and a backpack and rode away on a 10-speed bicycle, according to police.
