An armed robber identified as Robert Thompson, to set two women on fire at a convenience store, dousing them with lighter fluid, and setting one of them on fire.
The incident took place on Thursday at the Pit Stop convenience store in Palestine, Texas.
Surveillance video shows the suspect asking the store clerk, Linda Camire, for something from behind the counter.
When she turns her back, Thompson pulls out his handgun. He then walks behind the counter and forces the clerk into a corner, according to KLTV-TV.
As the clerk is forced to the ground, Thompson opens the cash register. Police say he took between $700-$800.
