A Stockton business near South El Dorado Street and California Street was the target of a fire bomb on Saturday morning.

At around 8:57 a.m., an adult clerk and a customer were in the business when a male suspect entered the building. The man threw a Molotov cocktail, which exploded in a ball of fire. The suspect then fled on foot with a second suspect.

The device caused extensive fire damage to the business, though both the clerk and customer got out of the building without injuries.

The police are looking for both suspects, described as two white or Hispanic males in their teens.
