Speaking to The Daily Telegraph, Jayden Lavendar claims he witnessed an unknown arsonist light a blaze outside their Mount Druitt home about 12am Friday night.

“I was in the lounge room … I saw somebody on the ground looking through my door, so I went to the window and they started running with the petrol,” he told the paper.

“They poured the petrol and then they lit it and it went bang, everything went up.”

The 14-year-old said the flames were coming underneath their front door.

It’s unclear whether emergency services responded to the fire.

The alleged attack is yet another blow to Jayden and his 15-year-old fiance Jenifer Morrison, who say they have not seen their baby since they spent 16 hours on the run with her on April 13.

The couple had smuggled the newborn from Nepean Hospital in the hope of spending Easter with the little girl, after they were reportedly told she would be "taken away" from them by Child Protection Services.

The trio were discovered camping bushland in Willmot, in Sydney's west, following a large-scale manhunt.

After the incident, baby Aria was returned to hospital for a thorough health check, but was reportedly discharged on Friday.

“I just want to know if my daughter is OK, I’m her father," Jayden told The Daily Telegraph. "It’s crushed me now knowing she is not at the hospital."

No charges were laid over the incident.
