  Arrest warrants issued for woman accused of trying to set fire to 2 pizza shops in Pittsburgh Pittsburgh police said they have warrants for the arrest of a woman suspected of trying to set fire to Pizza Milano on Fifth Avenue uptown and Cafe Milano on 6th Street downtown. Police identified the suspect as Nicole Jo Dawson, 36, and said there is video footage showing the alleged arson attempts from Tuesday. Police said the restaurants were occupied during both incidents.

Dawson and others protested outside the restaurant, believing the incident was racially motivated.

Instead of paying rent, Finley says he agreed to work for Dawson at $25 an hour for the home repairs and cover his own utilities.

However, Finley claimed the atmosphere changed “immediately after” he came out to the Dawson family as a transgender man, according to the lawsuit.

He claims they “misgendered him multiple times each day, with deliberate indifference as to the appropriate way to address” him.

Finley alleges Dawson’s step-father, Gregory, would “scream in Mr. Finley’s face that ‘you’re not a man,’ ‘a man wouldn’t work like this,’ and ‘you only think you’re a man.’”

He claims Dawson was aware of the incidents after he brought them to her attention, but “refused to act to end the abuse,” allegedly telling Finley, “You’re a grown woman.”

Finley alleges that in February of 2018, about two months after he had come out, he was ordered by the family via text message to move out of Isabel’s former apartment.

When he did not move out, Finley claims Dawson and her mother Isabel arrived outside of the apartment in April 2018 where Isabel allegedly dragged him out of the window of his bedroom and to the ground.

“Once Mr. Finley was lying helpless on the ground outside, Isabel, who is substantially larger than Mr. Finley, got on top of Mr. Finley’s body and began punching him,” the court documents allege. “While beating Mr. Finley, Isabel screamed, ‘You’re not so much of a fan now,’ which was a clear and denigrating reference to Mr. Finley’s gender identity.”

Finley also claims Dawson helped her mother and “sat down on top of Mr. Finley, actively restraining him while he was on the ground to ensure that her mother could continue battering.”
