WICHITA, Kan. (AP) -- A Wichita man who started his clothes on fire while allegedly trying to burn another man is now charged with aggravated arson and aggravated assault.

Twenty-four-year-old Brian Anthony Michael Thomas was formally charged Tuesday and his preliminary hearing was set for July 9.

Sedgwick County authorities say Thomas burst into an apartment on June 20 and threw gasoline on a 38-year-old while he bathed. The man was not injured but Thomas set his own clothes on fire.

The Wichita Eagle reports court records indicate three people were placed "in a substantial risk of bodily harm" as a result of Thomas' actions.

Thomas bail was set at $150,000. He asked for court-appointed attorney.
