Raul Murillo Diaz, a 30-year-old Oakland man was arrested early Thursday morning for allegedly attacking Google’s headquarters in Mountain View, California with Molotov cocktails. Diaz launched two of the flaming projectiles (Blue Moon beer bottles) one of which still had the wick attached—at a Google building on May 19th. The cocktails impacted near a Google Street View car. The car was undamaged, but a fire broken out behind it.
Police are investigating whether Diaz is behind two other recent Google-related crimes. Yes, there have been a string of “Google-related crimes”. It seems they have found their man. The first was an immolation of a self-driving car and a shooting that targeted the company’s office windows. Conveniently enough, surveillance footage from both crimes show the same 2004 Volkswagen Tourareg. This is the same car that Diaz drives.
