DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - Police in Des Moines are seeking for a suspect after they say a man was intentionally set on fire.

Police Sgt. Paul Parizek says the assault happened Friday afternoon and that the man is in critical condition.

Police were called just before 2 p.m. Friday about the fire. Officials found the 27-year-old victim with severe burns covering a significant portion of his body. Police say he was taken to the Burn Treatment Center at University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics.
