A female victim was almost set on fire Thursday afternoon near East 1st and South Pittsburg.
Tulsa police say the female and another unidentified victim were attacked by Gregory Wassinger. They told officers he used a dog leash to beat them.
He then tied the leash around the female victim's neck and tried to drag her. When the woman wouldn't move, Wassinger grabbed a gasoline can.
Police say he then poured gasoline all over the female.
Officers arrived at the scene and arrested Wassinger before the incident could escalate any further.
He was taken to the Tulsa County Jail, where he faces multiple counts including assault with a deadly weapon and endangering life.
EMSA workers had to cut the clothes off of the victim because she was soaked with gasoline and they didn't want a spark to make her catch fire.
