Faragi-Snow allegedly splashed gas on the man as he entered the apartment, hit him with a broken leg chair, threw shards of glass, and threatened to kill him and burn down the building with a lit cigarette, Gatcomb said. The man fled the apartment and called police.

A search found most of the electronics and appliances in the apartment to be destroyed, the walls covered with black spray paint, and the toilet seat broken off and left in the bedroom, police said.

Faragi-Snow is charged with assault to murder, attempting to burn a building, two counts of assault and battery with a dangerous weapon, vandalizing with a noxious substance, and malicious destruction of property.
