Long Beach police, on Sunday, released a surveillance video (below) showing a man throwing a Molotov cocktail at a male victim outside El Paisano Ranch Market in Long Beach, California on Friday night.

When the bottle hits the ground, the fire explodes, barely missing a mother with a baby in a stroller. The victim appears to be running through the parking lot where bystanders try to put out the flames, reports NBC Los Angeles.

The unidentified victim was taken to the hospital where he was in serious condition with serious burns to the lower part of his body, hands and face.

Police released the video to see if they can find the person responsible for the attack. They said it didn’t appear that the victim and suspect [in his 20s] knew each other.
