Three Florida teens have been charged with the brutal crime of dousing another teenager with a flammable liquid and setting him on fire. The 15-year-old victim, who was sitting by a pool at the time of the attack, is in serious condition and is expected to remain hospitalized for 5 months. He suffered burns on 75% of his body.
The three male suspects, two 15-year-olds and a 13-year-old, are charged with aggravated assault, reports the Miami Herald. It looks to be a revenge attack: On Sunday, victim Michael Brewer stopped a juvenile from stealing his father's bicycle. He stayed home from school on Monday for fear of retaliation and was attacked later in the afternoon.
