Aracely Gonzalez and her husband have owned the Crossroads Restaurant for 22 years. Theyre eager to get back in business with plans to rebuild. In the back of their minds, they believe the suspect is still out there and are unsure whether this could happen again.

It can happen again to us if we dont apprehend this person, said Gonzalez.

Gonzalez believes this was done intentionally because the surveillance footage shows the man had been carrying a bag.

He was prepared to come and do this damage. Im told that it took six minutes to take away all the hard work that weve been doing for so many decades, she said.

The restaurant was operated by Gonzalez and her family. Her kids were servers and spent most of their time at the restaurant. She said it was her home away from home.

Honestly sometimes I feel like this was my first home, and it was taken away, so its really hard. All my kids’ memories, Kindergarten drawings, pictures, theyre in my office because I told my kids I spend more time here than at home. So its hard to just look at the floor and everything is in ashes, said Gonzalez.

She said it would give her peace of mind to rebuild with a suspect in custody. Anyone with information is urged to call 88-CRIME.
