Three teens held in case of torched sleeping man

Three teens have been detained in a blazing attack on a sleeping man.

The Judicial Investigating Organization said that a 44-year-old man identified by the last name of  Ceciliano was asleep on the public street. He had covered himself with a blanket.

This was about 8 p.m. in San Sebastián. Agents accuse the teens of pouring flammable liquid on the sleeping man and then igniting it. The suspects were detained a short time later by Fuerza Pública officers. Two are 16 and one is 18.

The victim suffered second degree burns and went to  Hospital San Juan de Dios. Police said the man suffered burns mainly to his legs.
