A woman in South Florida is in a critical state after her boyfriend allegedly set her on fire early Monday, as reported the Broward Sheriff’s Office.

The sheriff’s office also said that the suspect who has been identified as Noe Jimenez-Cortes, 40, was taken into custody Monday evening in North Lauderdale.

Deputies are investigating the incident as an attempted murder. Jimenez-Cortes has not yet been booked yet, according to jail records.

The sheriff’s office received a call at about 4:30 a.m., and when they arrived at the location, they found a woman who told them her boyfriend had set her on fire and fled.

“The preliminary investigation reveals that Jimenez-Cortes poured an accelerant on the victim’s body and ignited the fire with a cigarette,” according to the sheriff’s office.

Officials are not releasing the name of the woman, who was taken to a hospital and was still in critical condition Monday evening.
