Campbell River RCMP say a young man found with serious burns on his back was intentionally set on fire.

The 20-year-old Campbell River man was taken to hospital after he was discovered on Monday morning by fishermen in a trail area near the local Brick store parking lot.

Police believe the young man was set on fire and his belongings taken as he was sleeping underneath a highway bridge.

The man shed his burning clothing and made his way to the parking lot for help. Police said his burns, while serious, did not appear to be life-threatening.

“Setting someone on fire is truly an egregious offence,” said Const. Maury Tyre in a news release. “Nobody, no matter what their situation in life, deserves to be treated in such a horrendous manner. We truly wish this young man a speedy recovery.”

Police said they have no suspects.

The investigation is in the early stages and police are looking to speak to anyone who may have been a witness to, or have information regarding this serious incident to contact the Campbell River RCMP at 250-286-6221 and reference File 2020-12211.
