Woman charged over acid attack
Tuesday 30 April 2013
A 21-year-old woman will appear in court today charged with throwing acid over a shop worker, which left her with burns to her face and loss of hair and eyebrows.
Naomi Oni, 21, needed skin grafts after the late-night attack, which happened as she got off a bus in Dagenham, east London, on 30 December. She had been on her way home from her job at a Victoria's Secret store in Westfield, Stratford.
Mary Konye, from Canning Town, was charged with throwing or casting a corrosive fluid with intent to burn, maim, disfigure, disable or do grievous bodily harm.
She will appear at Barkingside magistrates' court in Ilford.
