ANAHEIM (AP) — Anaheim police say someone set fire to a bus bench where a homeless man was sleeping and they are investigating it as a case of attempted murder.

Sgt. Bob Dunn said officers responded to a report of fire around 1 a.m. on Tuesday.

Witnesses told police that a passerby stopped and woke up the 53-year-old man before he was burned by the flames. He was not hurt.

Police said evidence at the scene indicates the fire was intentionally set.

There have been no arrests.
