Police say a woman first torched her ex-boyfriend's car and home, and then tried to hit him with her car.

Rocky Mount police say Gwendelyn Archabell is wanted for first degree arson, burning of personal property and assault with a deadly weapon.

The fire spread to his home. While they were waiting outside for the fire department, Dancy said the ex-girlfriend returned in her car and drove toward them, swerving the car as if she wanted to hit them.

Anyone who knows the whereabouts of the 51-year-old Archabell should contact Rocky Mount police.
