Man remains in custody over liquid attack in Lowestoft

Archant

A man remains in custody this morning after a woman suffered serious burns to her face during an attack in Lowestoft.

Police were called by the ambulance service at 8.20am yesterday to London Road South, at the junction with the Avenue, with a report that a man had squirted a woman in the face with liquid from a bottle, causing her facial injuries.

The victim, who is aged in her 20s, sustained serious burn injuries to her face, neck and chest and remains in hospital in a serious condition.

Following searches of the area a 38-year-old man from Lowestoft was arrested a short while later on suspicion of grievous bodily harm and he remains in custody at the Great Yarmouth Police Investigation Centre for questioning.

Police have been continuing with their enquiries and have been searching the area for the bottle which was used in the attack.

A witness described the bottle as being sports style and possibly a Lucozade bottle.

Two bottles matching this description have been recovered by police and will be sent off for forensic testing.

At this stage, as police do not yet know whether either of these are the offending bottle, they are reminding members of the public not to pick up any discarded bottles matching this description but to call them on 101.

A cordon which was put in place around the area of the assault in London Road South has now been lifted.

Anyone who has any information about this incident should call Lowestoft CID on 101 quoting crime reference LO/14/4110 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555111.
