Police: Man splashed woman and child with liquid, then set fire

Posted: Updated:

State police said a Lebanon County man splashed a woman and child with an ignitable liquid before setting it on fire.

Police said around 11:00 a.m. Sunday, 42-year-old Louis Torres poured the liquid inside a trailer on Lebanon Court in Bethel Township, splashing 35-year-old Esmerelda Adorno and a juvenile. Police said he then lit the liquid on fire.

Police said the fire also endangered two other children. A press release issued Monday morning did not say if anyone was injured.

The fire was contained to a rear bedroom, police said.

Torres is charged with arson, aggravated assault, recklessly endangering another person, simple assault, and criminal mischief.
