(Memphis)  Memphis Police have arrested a second suspect in last month’s brutal attack where a man was doused in gasoline and then set on fire.

26-year-old Robert Glasper was taken into custody Monday evening and charged with attempted first degree murder. He’s being held on $1 million bond.

Police say Glasper and 19-year-old Renard King, who was arrested last week, shocked the victim with a stun gun several times behind a house in the 700 block of Glanker back on August 6th.

Police said that Glasper then poured gas on the victim and the two set him on fire using the stun gun.

The victim, 40-year-old Marcellus Evans, is still recovering at the MED.

Family members said last week that he remains in critical condition.
