Here’s an eyewitness account of the attack at Third and Union that Josh/Angela reported on earlier, sent to Last Days by Hot Tipper Claire:
Something super fucked-up happened this afternoon downtown. I was standing on the corner of 3rd and Union when I noticed a suspicious guy holding a bottle jaywalking across the street. He passed by me, and the next thing I knew, the hair of the woman standing next to me was completly on fire. The man had dropped the bottle, which was obviously lighter fluid, and had walked halfway down the block before any of us around the woman could figure out what was going on. Luckily, some guys chased down the asshole, and we threw a coat over the lady’s head and she didn’t seem to be too hurt. I guess the guy had also tried to set an old man on fire across the street. The police arrived shortly thereafter, apprehended the man, and no one was badly hurt. Still, hands down the worst thing I’ve seen in a long fucking time.
