Houston police are seeking the boyfriend of a woman doused with gasoline and set on fire at the front door of her home.
Police spokeswoman Jodi Silva on Tuesday said 25-year-old Uriel Vargas Alvarado was wanted on a charge of aggravated assault with serious bodily injury. Silva had no information on his hometown.
Silva says 33-year-old Juana Patricia DeLeon Hernandez suffered burns over 70 percent of her body.
Silva says Hernandez was attacked when she answered a knock at her door Sunday night. Alvarado punched and knocked her to the ground, then "threw gasoline, set her on fire and fled."
The woman told neighbors who helped put out the flames that her boyfriend had assaulted her.
