DENVER - Denver police say four people were set afire during an assault in North Denver Thursday night.
The incident happened in the 4300 block of Lipan Street shortly before 7:30 p.m.
Police spokeswoman Raquel Lopez said two black males knocked on an apartment door and when a woman answered, she was sprayed with some type of liquid from a lawn and garden sprayer. The woman was then set afire when the men threw a match or lighter on her.
Lopez said the initial report of a small propane torch being used was incorrect.
Three others -- two men and a second woman -- inside the apartment were also sprayed and set afire, but suffered only minor burns, she said.
Lopez said the woman who answered the door was the most seriously burned and she was transported by ambulance to a local hospital.
Criminals don't need guns to do their damage, if they find these two people and convict them, they should be eliminated from the food chain without a long wait or ceremony.
