Police are searching for two men accused of robbing a man, tying him up and then setting him on fire.
The victim, whose name was not released, told police in Cambria County that he was working in his garage in Lower Yoder late Thursday when two hooded men entered, hit him in the head with a handgun and tied him up with an electrical cord.
West Hills police Chief Andy Havas said the victim said the pair then doused him with gasoline, set him on fire and fled with money.
He said he managed to free himself and used a garden hose to douse himself with water.
Chief Havas says he was taken to West Penn Hospital's Burn Center with severe burns.
