Man arrested over acid attack
2:00pm Wednesday 23rd January 2013 in News
A 50-YEAR-OLD man has been arrested in connection with an acid attack in central Bournemouth.
Detectives launched an investigation after man had ‘corrosive liquid’ thrown in his face during an incident in Branksome Hill Road in Meyrick Park on December 27.
The victim, a 46-year-old from Bournemouth, sustained serious injuries and remains in hospital.
Following the incident police said they did not believe the attack was ‘random’.
DI Becky Riggs said the offender may have also received burn-type injuries in the incident, which happened between 6pm and 7pm. She is keen to hear from anyone who saw a white Nissan people carrier in the area at the time of the offence.
The Bournemouth man was arrested on Saturday and has been released on police bail until mid March.
Anyone with information should call Dorset Police in confidence on 101, quoting incident number 27:379.
