Woman torched in her bed
A MAN is expected to be charged with attempted murder after dousing a woman with fuel and setting her on fire.
Emergency services were called to a house at 11am on Tuesday, and the 28-year-old woman, who is known to the man, was rushed to hospital with serious burns to her chest, arms and throat.
Police allege the man came through the back door of the woman’s home and entered her bedroom, before pouring flammable liquid over her as she was sleeping.
Neighbours in Brisbane, Queensland, said they were shocked by the incident and described the area as “a quiet suburban street where hardly anything happens”.
