Babes & Beer Dancer Set on Fire
An unidentified 27-year-old woman who danced at Tarzana's Babes & Beer nightclub was set afire early this morning, say police and newspaper reports. The woman, a mother of two children, was splashed with a flammable substance and lit near the Oxnard Street club around 1:30 a.m. Thursday. A man and a woman seen leaving the scene are suspected in the gruesome attack that left the dancer critically burned over 60 percent of her body. Police say the male suspect is Nathaniel Marquis Petrillo, 22, of Reseda, and his accomplice is Rianne Theriault-Odom, 27, of North Hollywood. It is thought that the victim knew her assailants and that Theriault-Odom may have once worked at the club. The L.A. Times released the suspects' photos, below.
