NJ Synagogue Firebomb Suspect Faces New Charges

A teenager charged in a series of attacks on New Jersey synagogues is facing new charges for allegedly trying to burn a building at Rutgers University.

Aakash Dalal (Bergen County Prosecutor's Office)

The Record of Woodland Park says a criminal complaint signed Thursday by Rutgers campus police alleges Aakash Dalal started a fire at the Army Reserve Officers’ Training Corps building at Rutgers New Brunswick campus on Dec. 10, 2011.

Dalal’s attorney tells the newspaper his client has nothing to do with the Rutgers incident.

The 19-year-old has previously pleaded not guilty to charges stemming from a series of attacks on synagogues in Bergen County.

A Rutgers spokesman says former student Michael Leviss was arrested Thursday and has also been charged in the Rutgers incident.

It’s not clear if he has an attorney.
