A Memphis man remains in the hospital at the burn unit after police say he was set on fire.

Authorities identified two suspects wanted for the crime.


Police say the man suffered injuries to most of his body.

Prior arrests meant Memphis police already had mug shots on file for 26-year-old Robert Glasper and 19-year-old Renard King. Police identified the two Thursday for allegedly being responsible for a horrific crime two weeks ago.

It happened in the 700 block of Glankler Street. A man was doused with gasoline and set on fire in a vacant lot behind an abandoned house.

Neighbor Robert Pearson could not recall the victim's name but remembers his screams.

"He was in the weeds. And I just came home from getting groceries. He was over there hollering, his skin peeling off," said Pearson.

Pearson had no clue who committed the crime, but said the devil himself would not deserve such treatment.

The victim was burned over 60 percent of his body and was initially hospitalized in extremely critical condition.

Arrest warrants have been issued for both Glasper and King charging the pair with one count each of criminal attempt first degree murder.
