San Francisco Police have arrested a second man who they say is responsible for vandalizing a Muni bus and setting fire to it during the World Series celebration in downtown.

Police arrested 19-year-old Nicholas Hudson, a Daly City resident, at 10:15 a.m. today on suspicion of vandalism and arson. He was taken into custody in South San Francisco and was booked into San Francisco County Jail.

Hudson was charged with vandalism, damaging or destroying a passenger transit vehicle, arson, and a probation violation. The cops say it was the public's campaign to track down the vandal that helped lead them to Hudson.

Police say the 8X-Bayshore Express Muni bus was set on fire about 12:30 a.m. Monday, Oct. 28, at Market and Third streets. The video, which was recorded by a witness, shows two suspects torching the bus as it stopped on Market Street. Last week, police released photos and a video showing the arson suspects in action. 

Today, investigators released more photos of additional suspects wanted for breaking windows of the same bus. These pictures show a white man in his 20s, wearing dark clothing and a baseball cap. The suspect used a skateboard to break windows on the side of the bus, according to police.

Second suspect
The photo shows a second male also using a barricade breaking the front windshield of the Muni bus. This suspect is described as a black male in his 20s wearing a red shirt with gray horizontal stripes. You can find more photos of the suspects here

Anyone recognizing these suspects should call the SFPD Special Investigations Division/Arson Task Force at 920-2944, the anonymous tip line at 575-4444, or Text-a-Tip to TIP411 and begin the text with SFPD.
