Woman, 21, tries burning down Bronx church with rum

A Bronx woman was arrested for trying to light a church and its members on fire Saturday, police said.

Eurasia Bryan, 21, poured out a rum bottle and tried to light the booze on fire with a match in front of the Ramah Christian Center on Fish Ave. in Williamsbridge around 11 a.m., according to cops.

Before Bryan was unable to get the flames started, she was confronted by church members, cops said.

Then she focused her fiery efforts on them, splashing them with rum and trying to ignite them with a match before running off, police said.

Cops arrested Bryan a short time later. Officials said that she was treated as an emotionally disturbed person.

Authorities charged Bryan, who lives less than a mile away in the Edenwald Houses, with attempted arson and attempted menacing.
