TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – Police have arrested suspect accused of entering a Florida Taco Bell, dousing a woman with gasoline and setting her ablaze.

Mia Williams, 32, was taken into custody around 5 a.m., said Rachelle Denmark, a spokeswoman for the Tallahassee Police Department.

Around dinner on Wednesday, police were called to the Tallahassee restaurant in response to an aggravated battery. By the time officers arrived, the suspect had fled the scene on foot. The victim was taken to the nearby North Florida Fairgrounds and airlifted to a hospital with serious injuries.

“TPD officers and investigators have worked throughout the night to locate the suspect in the attempted murder at Taco Bell last night,” Denmark said in a news release.

Police have not released the victim’s name or updated her condition since last night.

Police spokesman Damon Miller previously said investigators don’t know whether the suspect knew the woman or what may have led to the attack.

“I don’t know if the victim was an employee or just someone inside,” Miller said.

Denmark did not immediately specify what charges Williams will face. It was not clear whether Williams has been booked in jail.
