South Florida Crime

LANTANA, Fla. (AP) — A good Samaritan is helping a South Florida woman who was doused in gasoline and set on fire.

WPTV reports Naomie Breton faced some unlikely bills after the attack last week outside a 7-Eleven in Boynton Beach. It cost more than $500 to have her car towed from the site.

But an anonymous stranger has stepped in to pay the bill.

Breton was waiting to meet her ex and pick up her 4-year-old son when authorities said Roosevelt Mondesir arrived and allegedly began throwing gasoline on her car and body. She tried to run away, but police said the man ignited her and then chased her with a knife.

She tore off her shirt and ran into the store, holding the doors closed as a worker called police.
