Dexter Oliver is currently being sought by San Francisco officials after allegedly setting fire to his girlfriend. This case is still developing, but as of now the young woman is in life threatening condition in a hospital burn unit. If you see the man in the photo below, please do not hesitate to call authorities immediately. The 22-year-old man is facing charges of attempted murder and arson stemming from Sunday night's attack.
While officials are not entirely certain of what led to the attack, they say the family members of the horrifically injured woman say it was the result of a dispute over laundry. It's alleged that Dexter Oliver doused the woman in flammable fluid while they fought before setting her aflame.
"He approached her and threw ignitable liquid on her, causing her to suffer serious burns," said San Francisco officer Carlos Manfredi.
The Huffington Post says the liquid used to ignite the unidentified victim was gasoline, as according to the woman's sister. Witnesses reported hearing the victim screaming before she was taken to the hospital, and her sister says that most of her face is horribly burnt. If Dexter is truly the one who did this then justice needs to be served and he is a complete and total coward for hiding from the authorities while the woman suffers in such an unstable condition.
