The victim was taken to a burn enter for treatment after suffering extensive injuries to his lower extremities.
Officials said an officer went into the backyard because that's where the man was last seen, but the officer went in for just 10 seconds and left because it was too much to handle. The 18-year-old then walked out the back door and officials were able to grab him.
No additional information has been released.
