Two charged after man doused with gasoline, home set ablaze
Regina police say two people are facing charges after a man was doused with gasoline and his home set ablaze.
Around 3 a.m. Friday, police were called to a house fire on Ottawa Place, where they found a 21-year-old man and an 18-year-old woman.
Police say two men had broken into the house and assaulted the man, then doused him and his house with gasoline before setting the home on fire. The man made it out of the house, where he was allegedly assaulted by a woman.
The victim suffered minor injuries, while his female companion wasn’t hurt.
The three suspects drove away with an unknown woman. A day later, police arrested a 34-year-old man and a 36-year-old woman.
Calvin George Turcsanyi of Regina has been charged with mischief endangering life and break, enter and assault with a weapon. Crystal Nash, also of Regina, faces charges of assault with a weapon, possession of cocaine and possession of methamphetamine.
Turcsanyi made his first court appearance Tuesday, while Nash was released on an undertaking to appear in court on April 1.
