A person is in the hospital with “significant injuries” after being set on fire Friday afternoon in a West Central neighborhood.
Albuquerque Police Department spokeswoman Rebecca Atkins did not say if anyone was in custody or give the woman’s condition.
She said officers were called to a home on 47th NW, near Central, after a neighbor called 911 to report an attack on a woman.
Atkins said police found a woman in the area with “serious burns” and she was taken to a hospital for “immediate medical help.”
She said the neighbor told police the woman ran to their door asking for help and said she had been attacked.
Atkins said the woman told the neighbor her attacker had poured gasoline on her and lit her on fire.
