Redwood City, Calif. (The Weekly Vice) - Jacqueline Alexandra Rivera, an 18-year-old California woman, was jailed after she allegedly broke into her boyfriend's house and attempted to set him on fire.

According to police, Rivera became angry when she suspected that her 21-year-old boyfriend had cheated on her.

In retaliation, Rivera allegedly broke into her boyfriend's home at around 3 a.m., entered his room and set his mattress on fire.

The boyfriend, who was asleep on the bed, woke up screaming as his father rushed in to put the fire out with a garden hose.

Investigators say Rivera doused the boyfriend's mattress with gasoline before setting it ablaze. The victim suffered minor burns to his hands and arms as a result.

Rivera fled the scene before police arrived, however she reportedly showed up later the same day to talk to her boyfriend "about their relationship."

Rivera was booked into jail and charged with attempted murder, arson and residential burglary.
