San Francisco police: Man set fire to girlfriend
The Associated Press
Officer Carlos Manfredi says witnesses in the city's Bayview District reported hearing the woman screaming on Sunday. She was taken to a hospital burn unit.
Investigators believe her attacker was 22-year-old Dexter Oliver.
Manfredi says Oliver had a "dating relationship" with the woman, but he did not know the circumstances that led to the attack.
The victim's sister, Precious Craig, told KGO-TV that Oliver used gasoline and lit the woman on fire during an argument at a nearby Laundromat.
Craig says most of her sister's face was burnt, but the family expects her to recover.
