Boston Man Accused of Trying to Light Ex-Girlfriend On Fire

Jamaar Johnson, 23, of Dorchester, Massachusetts, was charged with trying to light his girlfriend on fire in her Cambridge apartment when she told him they were breaking up. Obviously, the attempted break-up didn’t go so well, and after a brief argument in the morning, Johnson returned with a can of gasoline and poured it on the woman’s head as she was smoking a cigarette.

The Cambridge Police Department responded after the woman called 911 and told them Johnson tried to set her on fire. He was found in her bed and immediately placed under arrest. Johnson was charged with two counts of Assault to Murder, Assault & Battery, and Attempt to Commit Arson.
