3.06 Needles, CA - Woman tosses gasoline and match onto toddler in stroller

Officers arrested Elizabeth Smoka, 56, of Mohave Valley, Sunday night for attempted murder.

A 3-year-old boy escaped injury Sunday after an alleged attempt on his life involving arson in Needles, CA.

San Bernardino County Sheriff's Sergeant Tim Smith said the attempt was averted "only by the grace of God."

Smith said deputies responded at about 9:00 p.m. to a residential area of Needles to reports that a woman had tossed a gasoline-soaked rag and a match into the child's stroller. Smith said the match failed to spark a fire.

Smith said investigators believe that Elizabeth Smoka, 56, of Mohave Valley, had been arguing with the boy's mother. He said Smoka tossed a gasoline-soaked rag on top of the blanket covering the boy before throwing in a lit match.

Smith said authorities apprehended Smoka after she fled the scene and returned to her home in Arizona. She was transported back to California, where she is being held on an attempted murder charge and $1 million bail.
