Angela Alexandor

Waco police arrested a local woman for attempted arson and aggravated assault after she allegedly tried to set her estranged husband on fire Wednesday.

Angela Alexandor, 33, went over to her husband’s home in the 900 block of East Church Street about 7:50 p.m. where she tried to light a Molotov cocktail and throw it at the house, Waco police Sgt. W. Patrick Swanton said.

Swanton said the husband heard her outside and when he confronted her they began to fight for control of the cocktail.

Alexandor then doused her husband with gasoline and tried to light him on fire. When she was unsuccessful, she hit him in the head with a claw hammer.

The husband had only minor injuries and refused treatment at the scene.
