Delivery rider likely to be blind after attack

Postby bramble43 » Friday 3 November 2017, 15:19

Another acid attack last night.

poor bloke likely to be blinded by the acid, if he survives at all.

He was out delivering food, gets sprayed with acid and his bike taken.

Another one to add to the 17,000 bikes stolen in the last year in London.

But it's ok, further cuts and more police station closures is sure to make London a safer place :rolleyes:



A fast-food delivery driver is in a life-threatening condition and is likely to lose his sight after two men threw acid in his face while trying to steal his moped, police have said.

The 32-year-old man was approached by the suspects, who were on a scooter, at about 6pm on Thursday in Walthamstow, north-east London, the Metropolitan police said.

They repeatedly threw a corrosive substance in his face as they tried to steal his vehicle.

The man was treated at the scene and taken to an east London hospital, where he remains in a life-threatening condition and is likely to lose the sight in both eyes, the Met said.

DCI Gordon Henderson said: “This attack has left a man fighting for his life and with terrible eye injuries.

“This was an innocent man going about his work as a delivery driver, who may never see again.”

Another acid attack on a delivery driver, 30 minutes later in Tottenham, north London, was also being investigated. Officers have not established whether the two attacks are linked.

Two kids arrested. a 14yo and 16yo.

Arrested for GBH, so that'll be a slap on the wrist. It should have been an attempted murder charge. :evil:

The victim is still unconscious, A group I am part of, a few went in to see him, not in a good way.

He will have no eyesight when he regains consciousness.
