Taxi driver set on fire by woman after enquiring about missing cash

Taxi driver Edmond Moses, a 32-year-old resident of New Market Street in South Cummingsburg, Georgetown, is in critical condition at the Georgetown Public Hospital after being set alight by the mother of his child.
Based on reports received, Moses was at home when, at about 19:00h on Wednesday, he discovered that his wallet with $18,000 had gone missing. He raised an alarm, and the suspect, who resides in another apartment at the same address, showed up and reportedly threw the wallet at him.

Moses told detectives that, on checking the wallet, he noticed that the cash was missing, and he enquired from the suspect if she had taken it. The woman responded in the negative, and an argument ensued between them. Soon after, the woman confronted him on the verandah of his apartment and threw a liquid substance at him, which she ignited with a lighter.
Emergency Medical Technicians (EMT) were summoned to the scene, and Moses was transported to the Georgetown Public Hospital, where he was admitted to the critical care unit, suffering from burns to his body and right hand. His condition is listed as serious.
The suspect has been arrested, and is assisting with the investigations.
