SAN FRANCISCO POLICE ARE SEARCHING FOR A MAN, SUSPECTED OF SEVERELY BURNING HIS GIRLFRIEND.
THE VICTIM'S FAMILY SAYS THE COUPLE WAS FIGHTING AT A LAUNDROMAT ON SUNDAY, WHEN 22-YEAR-OLD DEXTER OLIVER RAN HOME, GRABBED A CAN OF GASOLINE, DOUSED HIS GIRLFRIEND AND LIT HER ON FIRE.
SOUNDBITE: PRECIOUS CRAIG / SISTER OF BURNING VICTIM
'I saw him pour gasoline and a bottle and he left. I didn't know he was going to burn her.'
WITNESSES SAID THEY SAW THE WOMAN ON FIRE IN THE STREET.
THEIR IDENTITIES ARE BEING PROTECTED OUT OF CONCERN FOR THEIR SAFETY.
SOUNDBITE: (NO NAME) She took off her shirt. She dropped it off there. And then she was running, like, 'cause she got burned 'cause of the shirt.
And then the guy, I guess, that had burned her, took her purse and ran off that way.
SOUNDBITE: (NO NAME)
"she was basically like running, and she was screaming that's what we heard like I was like 'oh my she's screaming. Let's go get her."
POLICE ARE LOOKING AT IMAGES FROM SECURITY CAMERAS, AS THEY TRY TO TRACK THE SUSPECT.
