Liquid thrown in man’s face outside Harrods in suspected acid attack
A man was treated after being doused in an unknown liquid outside the luxury department store Harrods by two people riding a moped.
Police attended the scene on Monday evening after the moped riders reportedly threw the liquid into the face of a 47-year-old pedestrian.
He was treated by paramedics at the scene and then taken to the hospital.
“Officers from Kensington & Chelsea Borough are investigating, and at this early stage it is believed the liquid was thrown at the victim during an attempted robbery,” police said in a statement.
No arrests have been made at this stage and it is not yet clear whether the liquid used was corrosive.
The attack comes as police statistics reveal there have been 400 acid attacks in the six months to April.
This was according to National Police Chiefs’ Council (NPCC) figures from 39 forces in England and Wales.

Acid attack victims 'screamed in agony' while skin 'peeled off' - witnesses
Two men were left “screaming in agony” after acid was thrown in their faces in East London on Tuesday night, according to witnesses who said the corrosive substance "peeled off" their facial skin and melted their clothes.

The victims, thought to be in their late teens, flagged down police in Bethnal Green at around 7pm local time after having an unknown liquid thrown at them on Roman Road.

Paramedics were called and the men were taken to hospital for treatment. Firefighters at the scene also used their hoses to douse the men down.

Scotland Yard said the incident is being treated as a “suspected noxious substance attack.”

Videos of the incident on social media show a topless man pouring water over his face and torso as paramedics tend to him. Another man is seen sitting on the pavement while receiving medical attention.

Photos show what is believed to be one of the men’s jackets, with holes melted through the fabric.

PC Bennett, from Bethnal Green police station, said the color of the victims’ faces “had changed from where the bleach had been thrown over them.”

He told the Daily Mail at the scene: “There was a discoloring on the faces. They [the alleged victims] weren’t saying too much. It is believed that they do know who the suspect is.

“We can see it’s been burnt through their clothing.”

London MP demands carrying acid be made illegal after 90-minute attack spree
Carrying corrosive fluids should be made a crime, an MP has said, after two men on mopeds went on an acid attack spree across London on Thursday night, inflicting “life changing” injuries.

The Metropolitan Police say a 16-year-old has been arrested as a major investigation into the series of attacks that took place in less than 90 minutes is launched. The assaults appear to be linked, and two of the victims had their mopeds stolen, police added.

A 32-year-old man on a moped was left with facial injuries in Hackney after another moped with two male riders pulled up alongside him and threw a corrosive substance in his face.

One of the men stole his moped and the other drove away on the vehicle they arrived on. Police said the victim had gone to an east London hospital and they are awaiting an update on his injuries.

Little more than 20 minutes later, another victim was sprayed with the liquid in Islington. He was taken to a hospital in north London.

About 15 minutes after that, an attacker targeted another man in Shoreditch High Street. His injuries are not life-threatening, police said.

The men on mopeds then struck again, hurling acid at a man on Cazenove Road, causing “life changing” injuries.

The final assault of the night was reported to police at 11:37 local time, when another man was confronted as he sat on his moped in traffic on Chatsworth Road. After they sprayed acid in his face, the moped was stolen and the attackers fled.

The assaults take place amid increasing concern about the sharp rise in acid attacks across the capital.

Since 2010, there have been more than 1,900 reports of attacks involving corrosive fluids in London. Last year, it was used in 458 crimes, compared to 261 in 2015, according to Met Police figures.

Stephen Timms, Labour MP for East Ham, is calling for carrying acid to be made a crime. He will argue at a parliamentary debate on Monday that regulations surrounding acid should be overhauled “very quickly.”

“Carrying acid should in itself be an offence in the same way that carrying a knife was made an offence several years ago,” he told the BBC.

“I think that’s been a pretty effective change and I think the same change should be made for acid.”

Under the current law, if police stop someone carrying acid, they have to prove intent to cause harm.
