BRIGHTON, Mass. (MyFoxBoston.com) – Boston police are searching for a man they said poured lighter fluid on a box spring mattress on a woman's porch.

Police were called to 15 Chester Street in Brighton after the woman said she saw a man on her porch pouring liquid from a blue can on the mattress and some trash.

When the woman confronted the man, he reportedly said, "this is a message for the people upstairs." The man then jumped off the porch and ran toward Comm. Ave.

Police were searching for the man. He is described as in his early- to mid-30s with brown curly hair that was slicked back. He was wearing a dark leather coat and blue jeans.

Anyone with information is asked to call Boston Police.
