A Greek woman faces trial for allegedly setting fire to an amorous British tourist after drenching him with alcohol at a resort bar on the island of Crete.

Police on Crete say the 26-year-old suspect was charged with assault Thursday.

The victim, who has not been identified, was hospitalized with second-degree burns.

The incident took place early Thursday at the rowdy Malia resort, which is popular with young Britons, after the 23-year-old tourist allegedly made crude advances on the local woman.

The trial has been set for Friday in the city of Iraklio, in northern Crete. officials said.
