Man sets another man on fire at Clackamas County Denny’s

HAPPY VALLEY, Ore. (KGW/NBC News Channel)โ€“ Police are searching for a man who witnesses say set another man on fire Wednesday night at a popular restaurant in Happy Valley, Oregon.

Images of the suspect were captured on surveillance video.

Witnesses tell police this man walked into a Denny’s and sat down.

Moments later they say he threw gasoline on a 69 year old customer and lit him on fire with a book of matches.

The victim is in the hospital in critical condition.

Investigators say the two men did not know each other.

Detectives think this may be linked to a similar one from earlier this week when a man threw gasoline on another man at a movie theater nearby. He was not set on fire.

The victim in the Denny’s incident is said to be a regular customer.
