A man accused of setting a woman on fire was arrested Saturday night by Howard County police.

Police have not confirmed the identity of the man, who is believed to be homeless.

The woman, who also might be homeless, was taken to Johns Hopkins Burn Center with severe burns.

Howard police said the incident occurred in a wooded area near Gorman Road about 2:45 p.m. Saturday. A woman who is also thought to be homeless called the police from a nearby store.

After a search, police found a man on Greenwood Place about 5 p.m. and took him into custody.
