Police are searching for a man who allegedly set a woman on fire in Riverside County on Friday.

The suspect, Nicholas Norman, 38, from Beaumont, is wanted for attempted murder, according to the Beaumont Police Department.

Officers were contacted by a woman who said her friend had been doused with lighter fluid and set on fire by Norman. 

The victim was then transported to another home in the 36000 block of Olea Court after the attack, authorities said.

She was airlifted to a local hospital for treatment, police said.

Detectives served a search warrant at a home on the 600 block of Palo Alto Avenue, where they say evidence connected to the woman’s attack was found.

Norman remains at large and is currently wanted on charges of attempted murder, mayhem, arson and torture.
