Couch? You guys up here on a mission?


Looking to do some conversions? Don't you usually wait till the guy gets up before setting the couch on fire? Or was this a more fundamentalist sect of your religion? The guy turned out okay but I guess the couch was burnt to the ground.

Sleeping man set on fire by thugs
Brett Mineer Email news tips to Brett

A 26 year old man from New Westminster is recovering from burns to his chest, shoulders and wrist after he was set on fire in East Vancouver Saturday evening.

Vancouver Police Constable Lindsey Houghton says the man had been out drinking in the Commercial Drive area when he came across a couch at the intersection with 5th Avenue.

"He decided to have a nap" Houghton says. "Around 11:40, someone walking in the area saw three men standing over him and watched as one of them sprayed some type of fluid onto him and then lit him on fire."

Houghton says the mans burns are described as relatively minor.

"The witness ran to help the guy and a brief physical altercation between the witness and the three suspects occurred as he tried to help."

Another person heard the commotion and ran out to help.

Houghton says the attackers fled on foot.

He describes the men as caucasian and wearing all black clothing.

One of them is roughly 6 feet tall with a bald or shaved head, tattoos on his arms and between 25 and 40 years old.

Anyone with information is asked to call Crimestoppers."

Oh, this stuff isn't funny. There is some nationwide trend of punks abusing and killing homeless persons for entertainment. It's awful that people have become so sadistic.
