Woman, 21, left with 'head-to-toe' burns, Qld man charged

A MAN accused of a horrific attack that left a woman with head-to-toe burns has been arrested after a pursuit left a trail of wrecked cars across Brisbane.

The man faces a string of charges, including torturing and attempting to disfigure his girlfriend, after she was found with burns all over her body at a Bulimba unit following an anonymous tip-off nine days ago.

Police went to a Stafford property to speak to the man late on Monday but he took off and rammed two police cars.

It is alleged he also stole and crashed two other vehicles while trying to flee and forced entry to a Clayfield home, where he was arrested.
