A woman set fire to a man’s home after he texted her to come over and get some dick, but fell asleep when she got there and failed to give her any.
A woman from Woodbury New Jersey was arrested on Tuesday after she set fire to a home on August 4th.
Police say Taija Russel sent a series of angry texts to the victim’s phone after reaching his house to find that he wasn’t answering the door.
According to police, the victim, whose name has not been released, invited her over to his house for late-night sex.
When Taija arrived at his house she found that the man had fallen asleep. After sending him angry texts, video surveillance shows Taija went to buy lighter fluid, matches, and a lighter at a nearby Conoco gas station at 4 am. She then used the items to set a fire in front of the man’s doorway, then fled the scene.
Some of the angry texts read:
“I see you wanna die”, “You wasted my money to come out here”.
The man awoke at 4:30 am and found flames blocking his home that had been set on fire. Police say the man escaped by removing the window frame from one his windows and climbing through the opening.
The man was covered in soot and ash when he ran to the Woodbury’s police station. He “frantically” stated that his house was burning, then ran back to his house according to police.
The man was taken to the hospital to be treated for smoke inhalation, and first and second-degree burns.
Firefighters managed to save the man’s dog from the fire.
Although they managed to save the dog, the probable cause statement stated:
“The residence and its contents were completely burned down”
Taija Russel is being held on charges of attempted murder, aggravated arson, endangering and criminal mischief.
