JOHANNESBURG – A man is being sought by police after he allegedly set fire to a woman and her car, causing burns to her hands and face, in South Crest, Alberton, on Thursday, Gauteng police said.

The man, a 57-year-old gardener, was apparently angry because he had been asked to vacate the room he lived in due to an alleged “drinking problem”, Warrant Officer Andre de Jager said.

The woman, another tenant in the same building, was in her car when the man allegedly poured petrol on the car and set fire to it.

The woman was taken to Union Hospital, in Alberton, for treatment for burns on her face and hands.

The man fled on foot and had not been arrested by 4.30 pm.
