Police in Madisonville, Kentucky, are searching for a man caught on surveillance video attempting to torch a barbershop, and in the process, lighting himself on fire.
CCTV shows a white, Ford minivan outside a building on Sunday morning.
A woman gets out of the van and shatters a window at the back of the building before a man emerges from the minivan with what appears to be a bottle. He returns to the van and brings out a lit Molotov cocktail.
The suspect’s left leg can be seen engulfed in flames as he takes off sprinting in a panic across the parking lot before tumbling into a nearby lawn and disappearing off camera.
He returns into view, missing one sneaker and throws a flaming sock into the air, which continues to smoulder as he returns to the van.
Before leaving, he pours another bottle of flammable liquid on the flames and then drives away.
