San Francisco Police have arrested a second man who they say is responsible for vandalizing a Muni bus and setting fire to it during the World Series celebration in downtown.

Police arrested 19-year-old Nicholas Hudson, a Daly City resident, at 10:15 a.m. today on suspicion of vandalism and arson. He was taken into custody in South San

Francisco and was booked into San Francisco County


Hudson was charged with vandalism, damaging or destroying a

passenger transit vehicle, arson, and a probation

violation. The cops say it was the public's campaign to track down the vandal that

helped lead them to Hudson.

Police say the 8X-Bayshore Express Muni bus was set on fire about 12:30

a.m. Monday, Oct. 28, at Market and Third streets. The video, which was recorded

by a witness, shows two suspects torching the bus as it stopped on

Market Street. Last week, police released photos and a video showing the arson suspects in action. 

Today, investigators released more photos of additional suspects wanted for breaking windows of the same bus. These pictures show a white man in his 20s, wearing dark clothing and a baseball cap. The suspect used a skateboard to break windows on the side of the bus, according to police.
