Memphis police have identified two suspects they say doused a bystander with gasoline before setting him on fire more two weeks ago, according to a report by WMC-TV in Memphis.

The brutal attack left the Memphis man with burns to more than 60 percent of his body. He remains in serious condition at a hospital burn unit where he is being treated, the news reports state.

Police identified 26-year-old Robert Glasper and 19-year-old Renard King Thursday as the primary suspects in this horrific attack.

According to police the attack took place on the 700 block of Glankler Street in a vacant lot behind an abandoned house. The suspects doused the unnamed male victim with gasoline, when neighbor Robert Pearson heard him his screaming.

Arrest warrants have been issued for both Glasper and King, the news report states. The duo have been charged with one count each of criminal attempt first degree murder.

Police are asking anyone with information on the whereabouts of these two men to call CrimeStoppers at 901-528-CASH or the Tillman Station precinct at 901-636-3214.
