CRANSTON, R.I. (WLNE) — The Cranston Police Department announced that they arrested three individuals allegedly involved in an assault and attempted arson that occurred on April 27.

Cranston police arrested Brianna Wischnowsky, 20, of Warwick, and Drew Rappoport, 19, of Coventry, alongside a juvenile male on May 3.
