A man from Romulus is facing charges for a horrifying attack on his girlfriend.

Frank Stanchulski, 31, is accused of pouring gasoline on her -- and then trying to ignite her with a lighter. When that did not work, prosecutors say he doused the 30-year-old woman's car with gas and set it on fire.

It happened in Van Buren Township.

Stanchulski was arraigned on multiple charges including assault with intent to do great bodily harm, arson and domestic violence.

His preliminary examination has been set for September 14 at 9 a.m.
