Two charged after acid attack on man
Friday 24 July 2009
A teenager and a 25-year-old man appeared in court yesterday charged with attempting to murder a man by pouring acid down his throat.
The 24-year-old victim, believed to be Danish, was almost killed after being attacked with sulphuric acid and stabbed twice in the back in Leytonstone, east London, on 2 July. Police denied reports that officers have warned a married Muslim woman – who was allegedly having a relationship with the victim – that her life was now at risk.
The two suspects, who cannot be named for legal reasons, were remanded in custody after appearing at Waltham Forest magistrates' court.
