The 27-year-old woman suffered second degree burns to her torso after the incident early Thursday morning.

Grullon allegedly fled the scene in a 2007 Ford pickup truck.

The victim took hours to reveal that the burns were deliberately inflicted by her soon-to-be ex-boyfriend, according to CBSNews.

"It took most of the day for her to finally admit to a social worker what had really happened to her. At first she was saying it was a barbecuing accident," said Hialeah Police Sgt. Carl Zogby.
