Set on Fire
Authorities in Texas on Thursday said they arrested a suspect wanted for a violent robbery earlier that included duct-taping a convenience store clerk and customer and then pouring lighter fluid on the customer and setting her on fire.
The suspect, identified by police as 40-year-old Robert Thompson, entered the convenience store with a handgun around 9:30 a.m., Chief Andy Harvey said. Surveillance footage shows the suspect asking the store clerk for something behind the counter then pushing her into a corner at gunpoint and duct-taping her, police said.
The suspect then walked to the front door where he pulled a customer into the store and duct-taped her near the store clerk, police said. A police official said the suspect doused both women with lighter fluid, then lit a match and set the customer on fire. The suspect then made off with a few hundred dollars.
