Police say a man doused them with liquid shortly after noon on June 17 before setting them alight.

She was hospitalized in critical condition with horrific “life-changing” second and third degree burns.

Officer Alex Li said, “The man allegedly poured some type of liquid substance or accelerant on this woman and then ignited that substance, causing a fire and burning the female victim.”

The man, Tenzin Norbu, was charged with attempted murder, assault with a weapon, general harassment endangering the life, safety or health of the public and mischief for a total of over US$5,000 (£4,100). that affects property.

Tragically, the woman died this week from her shocking injuries.

Police say Norbus’ charges will now be updated following her death.

Police officers have described the attack as “random” and a “single incident” but said “the investigation is being treated as a suspected hate crime.”

After the harrowing incident, the victim’s sister, Dawa, started a fundraising page and said her sister had “suffered full-thickness burns, is in critical condition and is on life support.”

Dawa said her sister was on her way “to work as a professional caregiver when she was attacked by a stranger who poured lighter fluid on her and set her on fire.”

She added: “My sister is a caregiver who has lived a life of service to others.

“At this point we really need support from all of you in the long journey that lies ahead.”
