ROCHESTER, Minn. – Police are asking for the public help in finding someone connected to an arson investigation.

Rochester officers were called to an apartment building in the 400 block of 31st Street NE at around 3:40 am on April 4. Three hallway mats on different levels of the building had been set on fire. All the flames were put out with only limited damage done.
