Washington D.C. (CNN) - Authorities released the mug shot of the man accused of throwing a lit Molotov cocktail inside a Washington D.C. area mall.

Police say Leon Traille, Jr. threw the bomb into the food court of a mall in Arlington, Virginia Thursday.

The bottle did not explode and no one was hurt.

The mall was closed and after a three-hour search, Traille was arrested and questioned by the FBI and other federal authorities.

Police later found three more Molotov cocktails inside the mall.

Charges include reckless endangerment and use of a fire bomb. He also faces a federal arson charge.

Traille was expected to make two court appearances Friday.

There's no word yet on the motive.
