Another suspected acid attack has been launched in London, less than 24 hours after a spate of five similar incidents.
The rider, in his 20s, was approached by two men on another moped who squirted what was described as a “noxious substance” at him.
They attempted to steal his moped but were unsuccessful, and the man was taken to hospital.
“He does not have lasting injuries and has been discharged,” a spokesperson for Scotland Yard said. “There have been no arrests and enquiries continue.”
It came a day after five separate victims were targeted by two moped-riding attackers in the north and the east of the capital.
Two of the assaults saw mopeds stolen, while another victim was left with “life-changing” injuries inflicted after being sprayed.
Detectives have made two arrests relating to Thursday’s rampage, with boys aged 15 and 16 in custody.
