Email News Alerts

A Bemidji man has been charged in a Molotov cocktail incident involving a Park Rapids business.

Leon Jenkauski, 59, faces a charge of arson in the incident in May in which a burning bottle was thrown through a side window of the business on Highway 34.


It was unclear this weekend if he had been charged in a similar incident at a Walker business almost two years ago.
