Police say a homeless man set a 63-year-old California man on fire outside a 7-Eleven store by throwing a flammable substance inside the man's parked SUV.
Long Beach Sgt. Aaron Eaton says the man suffered severe burns in the Friday evening attack.
Bystanders helped douse the flames and 38-year-old Raymond Sean Clark was arrested a block away. Eaton says the attacker and victim apparently didn't know each other and the motive was murky.
Clark was jailed on suspicion of attempted murder and on some misdemeanor warrants.
The victim was hospitalized in critical condition.
