Diversity Is Strength?

FROM: The Daily Mail

A 26-year-old woman has been left with life-changing burns after an attacker threw acid at her face as she walked along a street in east London.

The victim, who suffered injuries to her face and leg, was taken to hospital following the vicious attack near Canary Wharf on Wednesday evening, just after 7pm.

It is believed she was targeted in Marsh Wall, near South Quay DLR station, before running to Westferry Road which is where police attended.

The substance has been tested and confirmed as a strong acid solution.

No arrests have been made and inquiries are continuing.

Officers are currently reviewing CCTV and pursuing a number of leads to identify the suspect, who was not seen by the victim.

A Scotland Yard spokesperson said: ‘Someone has thrown this at her. She hasn’t seen who did this or how.

‘In terms of whether the attacker was on foot or in a car or on a bike, we don’t have that level of detail.

‘There was nothing said and no discussion. At this stage nothing indicates she knows who the suspect is.’

Anyone with any information should call Tower Hamlets CID on 0208 754 4550 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
