Police arrest suspect who set pregnant woman on fire in Md

"She was very fearless", Prince George's County police spokesperson Jennifer Donelan said, according to the station.

A man, Laquinn Phillips allegedly set his pregnant girlfriend, Andrea Grinage on fire because "he wasn't ready to be a father". They were responding to a fire at 11:45 am on Friday.

"[The mother] was able to tell emergency personnel and our officers who set her on fire and also indicated to officers that this particular individual - an adult male with whom she had a relationship - was possibly on his way to Washington DC to do more harm to a relative of hers", Donelan added.

Despite her serious injuries, Grinage mustered up the strength and courage to tell authorities that her partner doused her with a flammable liquid and set her on fire inside her home.

Arthur Grinage has begun a GoFundMe page for his daughter, Andrea Grinage, who was critically burned but delivered a healthy baby girl, which she named Journey.

'She was very fearless. "We want her family to know how fearless she was - suffering as badly as she was, critically burned, anxious about her unborn child, dealing with those injuries, and was able to share the information with us", Donelan said.

"She's a mother of 2 boys ages 15 and 8 and a newborn that was born 7 weeks premature", her father wrote on the crowdfunding site.

Authorities say a man suspected in the crime surrendered to police in Washington.

"Within 2-and-a-half hours of that awful scene here, we had that suspect in custody", Donelan said in front of the Capitol Heights apartment where the woman lived. Both the mother and baby are alive. "She's doing fine. She's excellent". Neighbors said they heard the two arguing Thursday night.

Neighbors say the pregnant victim was visibly burning when she banged on neighbors' doors seeking help.
