Homeless Man Sets Man on Fire Outside of 7-Eleven in Long Beach

A man suffered severe burns after a homeless man set his car on fire outside of a 7-Eleven in Long Beach, CA on Friday. The man was seated in his car when the homeless man ran up and threw a Molotov cocktail through an open window. Luckily, witnesses were able to rescue the 63-year-old victim from the blaze. As of yesterday, he remained hospitalized.

38-year-old Raymond Sean Clark was arrested and charged with attempted murder and arson. He's being held on $502, 200 bail at the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Inmate Reception Center. Authorities are calling the attack a "random act," as there is currently nothing that suggests the men had met prior to the incident. However, ABC7 says that the victim denied Clark's request for money.
