Wichita Police are looking for a man who accidentally set himself on fire - while he was trying to set someone else on fire.
It happened around 5 a.m. this morning when police say a 20-year-old forced his way into an apartment in the 900 block of North Broadway.
The suspect was carrying a lighter and flammable material in a gas can, and tried to set fire to the 38-year-old man who was in a bathtub.
Instead he accidentally set himself on fire, and ran from the building. Officers are looking for this man, and believe he has burns to his hands and torso.
It's unclear why the suspect tried to set the other on fire, but police say the two know each other.
