Officers said they’re not sure a woman will survive after she was doused with fluid and lit on fire while working at a Jacksonville, Fla., Golden Corral.
Officers said the restaurant on Memorial Park Road was packed around 5 p.m. Wednesday when a man walked in.
Surveillance video shows the man douse the woman, who is in her 50s, with a flammable liquid and light her on fire, officers said.
Officers said the woman knew the man.
A Golden Corral spokesperson said the suspect did not work at the restaurant.
He will be charged with attempted murder, officers said.
