Lakeland police have arrested the man who is accused of severely burning a woman on Friday.

Police said 32-year-old Joshua Kimbrough is also responsible for a carjacking and burglary that took place Friday evening.

Police were called to a home on the 1100 block of Stella Avenue around 7:30 p.m. after receiving reports of a female with burns.

The 26-year-old victim was found with severe burns to her body, according to police. She was rushed to a nearby hospital and is in critical condition, officials said.

Although police have not said what caused the woman's burns, investigators believe Kimbrough is responsible.
