A female robber sprayed gasoline over a woman and her baby's pram and threatened to set her on fire in a horrific attack in Spain.
The 49-year-old attacker, a Moroccan woman, focused Monday on the young mother in the coastal town of Vall d & Uixo in eastern Spain.
She placed a lighter on the mother's face and demanded her belongings, the police said.
The mother handed her handbag, but followed the robber after she gave her baby to a friend who happened to die.
She managed to hold the woman until the police arrived and arrested her.

The police have since seized the gasoline-filled spray that the suspect would have used during the attack.
Analysts have investigated the flammable liquid and confirmed that it contained gasoline, police sources said.
According to local reports, part of the fuel had ended up in the pram.
Police officers also grabbed the lighter, as well as various knives that were not used in the robbery.
The nameless Moroccan woman was detained on Tuesday after she had appeared in court in a closed session.
She was told that she was being investigated on suspicion of attempted murder and theft.
The suspect was already known to the police. It is said that a defense lawyer tries to get her admitted to a mental health institution after a forensic investigation.
The police must investigate whether they can be responsible for a previous incident on the same day in Vall d & # 39; Uixo.
Another woman told the police that someone had tried to spray her with a liquid in a parking garage in the city.
