CHICAGO (WLS) — Someone walked up to a 75-year-old man lying on the ground in Chicago’s Loop and set him on fire early Wednesday morning, Chicago police said.

CPD said the man was in the 0-block of North Wabash Avenue about 2:50 a.m. when a male suspect approached him, poured a flammable liquid on him and set him on fire.

The suspect then went west on foot.

A security officer from a nearby building used a fire extinguisher to put the fire out.

The man suffered burns to nearly half his body and was taken to Northwestern Memorial Hospital, where he is listed in critical condition.
