According to police, a man doused his ex-girlfriend with gasoline and set her on fire. Roosevelt Mondesir, a 59-year old man, is accused of throwing gasoline on his 34-year old girlfriend and setting her on fire. The incident took place at 3 am this morning and the woman was inside the store when police arrived, her shirt still on fire in the parking lot. She had burns to her face and body.
The man was found in the bushes near the 7-Eleven by tracking dogs and a helicopter. The woman told police from her hospital bed that the two were scheduled to meet so that she could pick up her 4-year old son as part of their shared custody agreement. Instead, Mondesir showed up without the boy and had a can of gasoline instead. The woman tried to run to the car, and he poured gasoline on her and lit her from behind.
After he set her on fire, Mondesir tried to chase the woman with a long knife. She ran into the store while on fire, trying to hold the door shut. The 7-Eleven staff called the police.
Mondesir is in the hospital recovering from burns he received as he tried to k**l the woman. He is being charged with attempted murder.
