Metropolitan Police are searching for two separate suspects who have been involved in a total of four ‘acid attacks’ in London.
Police state the two suspects drove by pedestrians on mopeds and tossed acid into their faces.
All four attacks were carried out in just over an hour between 10:25 PM and 11:40 PM last night.
The first attack happened on the Hackney Road junction with Queensbridge Road in London, when two men on a moped drove up alongside the victim, also on a moped, and threw acid in his face.
One of the attackers stole the victim's moped and the other attacker drove away on the moped they arrived on.
Then at 11 PM, two males driving on a moped threw acid in another person’s face on Shoreditch High Street.
A similar instance also occurred after 11 PM on Cazenove Road, Hackney, where a corrosive substance believed to be acid was again sprayed in another victim’s face.
Then police were later called to another instance at 11:37 PM on Chatsworth Road, where two males on a moped pulled alongside him and sprayed liquid in his face, stealing his moped.
All four victims have been taken to the hospital, with one of the victim’s injuries described as life changing and possibly could be fatal.
