Concord police said that they have arrested 37-year-old Dwyane Crawford, after being accused of setting his twin sister on fire in her home.

Crawford has been charged with arson, attempted first-degree murder, first-degree assault, reckless conduct and criminal mischief in connection with the attack on his twin sister identified as Takima.

He was booked into jail, pending a bail hearing.

According to the police investigation, the fire department was called to a home on Woodbine Avenue around 2:45 a.m. on Thursday.

Neighbors reported smoke coming out of a window of the home. Firefighters and police found Takima rolling in the snow outside of the home to relieve her burns.

Takima told her two sons that her twin brother doused her with gasoline and set her in fire. Crawford allegedly admitted to police to setting his twin sister on fire in the home.

Takima, who suffered third-degree burns, was taken to the Concord Hospital for treatment. She was later transported to another hospital in Boston, Massachusetts, where she is said to be in critical condition.
