The man, in his 50s, opened the door of his residence in a "dificult" neighbourhood of Valence Saturday night before been assaulted by two young men, soaked in fuel and set aflame.

Miraculously, the victim only suffered superficial burns. The two aggressors stole the victims keys and phone before locking him in a room of his house.

He was only rescued in the early hours of the morning when a neighbour was alerted by his cry for help.

The suspects, known to the local police, have now been arrested and should be indicted in the coming days.

The victim apparently knew his aggressors and the police believes that the assault may have been the result of a type of feud between two families.
