This just breaking now. Seems two men on a moped threw acid over 5 people's faces causing grievous injuries within a 90 minute spree on Thursday night.



Two men on a moped carried out five acid attacks in a 90-minute period in London on Thursday night, leaving one victim with life-changing injuries. The attackers threw corrosive substances in people's faces in Stoke Newington and Hackney, police said. The victims were taken to hospital, with one of them suffering 'life-changing injuries'. A male, in his teens has been arrested on suspicion of grievous bodily harm and robbery. He is currently in custody at an east London police station.


London Acid Attack - 5 victims

Such cowards to do this vile act. Acid causes extensive, irreversible damage. Not much word on the victims yet but it seems they were young people out on the town enjoying a night out. This is just senseless.

If I caught someone doing that I would beat them till they didnt have a face left. The perpetrator isnt even a person, just garbage needing the bin.

I never say # like that. But i think in this case its actually appropriate.

The use of acid to disfigure and punish women is a practice prevalent in Pakistan and India. Its seems these practices have come to the UK, and used by criminals big and small. It is quite a revolting way to harm someone.

Anyway, the good news is they have arrested the perpetrators.

This type of attack is very very common in London now, esp in bike jacking cases. Just look on youtube for other attempts that where caught on camera.

I have a gut feeling the people carrying out this attack will be of either West Indian heritage or second/third generation youths. Acid is widely used by Jamaican gangs, this goes back decades in their native land and is starting to show up in London now.

I am in court giving evidence on a similar attack later this year, the absolute lack of moral control shown by these animals is just staggering, living in London these days is more like living in a third world republic. I would not be surprised to see neck lacing taking place in the near future.

You have to ask how did we get to this problem?.. I know there is a elephant in the room try to avoid it i guess???.

LOL...come on...dont play daft.


On a related note...interesting to see...no identity or any kind of description of the attackers.

the only thing so far..."the pair" and a teenager.

That's the new norm. We dont want people connecting dots and stuff.

It's way more important to be politically correct than preserve our culture.

I am not saying they aren't white just commenting on modern society.

While there is a culture of acid attacks among certain immigrant groups, it has to be noted that scumbags of all ethnicities and cultures are doing this.

There was a recent case of some tattooed white guy attacking a couple of muslim women in a restaurant.

The way this is going, we soon won't be able to buy household bleach or soda crystals without a flipping licence.


I reckon anyone using corrosive stuff to harm someone should be looking at a minimum of 20 years inside.

Initial reports and indications are that these attacks were motivated by theft and robbery and there is currently nothing to suggest that they were racially or culturally influenced.

Of course initial reports and indications can be well wide of the mark, but until there is any evidence whatsoever to suggest this lets just go with what we know - anything else could easily be construed as nothing but fear mongering.

Regardless of motivation, anyone found guilty of committing this or similar crimes should be lifed off.

20 minutes in an acid bath would be more fitting and a hell of a lot cheaper.

It would be cheaper, but do you have the confidence that the justice system ALWAYS gets the right perp? I don't, hence preferring jail.

When did all this acid attack stuff start happening in London on such a regular basis?

Since people were crammed together in confined spaces, behavioural sink comes to mind.

People in general are pretty screwed up, makes no difference what religion you follow or which color your skin is.

So you're arguing the exception proves the rule? That the increase in acid attacks in England is due to tattooed white guys?

Or are you an apologist?
