Tulsa police are looking for a man they say broke into an occupied apartment and used a Molotov cocktail to set the place on fire.

Joseph David Yearwood, 36, is wanted for first degree burglary and arson. There is a reward for information leading to his arrest.

Yearwood kicked in the front door of an apartment in the 100 block of North Delaware Place and attacked the man who lived there, according to an affidavit filed October 4, 2011, by an assistant Tulsa Fire Marshal.

He set the entryway of the apartment on fire using a Molotov cocktail, trying to block the man's escape, the marshal said.

Investigators say they have an audio recording of Yearwood threatening to bring the fire bomb to the victim's house.

Yearwood is described as a white male, about 5'10" tall and 180 pounds. He has brown hair and hazel eyes.

If you have information that can help Tulsa Police, call Crime Stoppers at 918-596-COPS, write crimestoppers@cityoftulsa.org or text a tip to CRIMES (274637). Begin you message with "Tip918."
