SALISBURY, Md.- Salisbury police say officers on Monday arrested a woman accused of dousing her live-in boyfriend with bleach and rubbing alcohol and then setting him on fire.

Police said that shortly after 1 a.m. Monday, officers responded to a home on the 600 block of Fitzwater Street for a reported domestic assault. Officers said when they arrived on the scene, they learned that a 48-year-old man and the suspect, Natalie Chase Robinson, 53, were involved in an argument in their home that quickly turned physical. The victim told police Robinson threw bleach onto his face and rubbing alcohol onto his upper body and face before setting him on fire, police said.

The man was able to put out the flames, escape from the home and call police, authorities said.  Officers located and arrested Robinson, who is charged with attempted first-degree murder, attempted second-degree murder, as well as first- and second-degree assault. 

Robinson was taken to the Wicomico County Detention Center where she is being held without bond. Police said a search and seizure warrant was carried out at the home, and additional evidence was collected that supports the victim’s accusations.

The victim was taken to Peninsula Regional Medical Center where he was treated and released for non-life-threatening injuries, police said. The investigation is continuing and anyone with information is asked to contact Crime Solvers of the Lower Eastern Shore at  410-548-1776 or the Salisbury Police Department at 410-548-3165.
