SLIPPERY ROCK, Pa.-The owner of Weiners Gone Wild on Rt. 8 told WNYNewsNow Monday accused area arsonist Jonathan Young was very calm during his arrest in late March.
“Jonathan was very calm when he was arrested, telling me he was okay,” the owner said. “I don’t like what he (allegedly) did, but I feel bad, as a mom, for him.”
Young reportedly ate breakfast at the restaurant, paying with cash despite having limited resources during his arrest. Young indentified himself as Jonathan per the owner despite calling himself “Grant Davis” to police.
The owner said Young told her he was walking to Virginia, to which she responded by handing him a business card.
“I told him to let me know when he made it to Virginia,” she said. “Again, it’s the mother in me.”
Young will appear in court this afternoon with WNYNewsNow in attendance.
