The Clackamas County Sheriff's Office says a man walked into a Denny's restaurant Wednesday night, threw what was likely gasoline on a customer and then lit him on fire. The incident happened around 9 p.m. at the Denny’s at 12101 S.E. 82nd Avenue, across from the Clackamas Town Center. Deputies said they reviewed restaurant surveillance video and saw the suspect sit down in a booth next to the victim. They said they then saw the suspect dump a liquid on the victim and toss a burning object onto him. There was then a large flash, according to the report, before the suspect ran out of the restaurant.
