On February 27 in West London, the suspect struck up a conversation with the victim, an 82-year-old man, as they left the place of worship together.

Five minutes later, the suspect had doused him with a liquid, which investigators believe was gasoline, before setting it on fire with a lighter.

The victim had been hospitalized with serious injuries to the face and arms.
