LI man accused of trying to set woman on fire

Police say an Inwood man turned himself in to police Tuesday morning after allegedly trying to set his girlfriend on fire after a fight last week.

According to authorities, the argument between 31-year-old Danny Gonzales and his girlfriend turned violent and escalated outside her Inwood home.

Once outside, Gonzalez allegedly threw gasoline on her and attempted to ignite it by tossing a lit cigarette. She only suffered a slight burn and was able to escape to a neighbor?s house and called 911, police say.

Gonzales is charged with arson, attempted murder and other charges. Police say it wasn?t the first time they were called to the home for a domestic violence incident.
