Man throws acid at woman with baby in racist attack
Despicable racism in Manchester
Another despicable racist attack has occurred in Britain. In this case an unnamed woman, 29, was walking with her baby in a pram when a man made a sexual and racist comment before throwing liquid at her back and, when she turned round, her chest.
The woman suffered burns to her chest and back and is in a stable condition, police said, adding that the baby was not injured in the attack.
‘This is an appalling attack on a lady who was walking with her very young baby,’ said Detective Constable Jim Harris from Salford CID.
‘Thankfully none of the corrosive liquid hit the baby or went on the victim’s face as the incident could have been a lot worse than it already is.’
Greater Manchester police (GMP) said the woman was pushing her pram in Broad Street, Pendleton, before being attacked as she walked into a subway leading to Salford Shopping Centre.
Releasing an e-fit of the suspect, police said the man was white, of stocky build, 5ft 10in to 6ft 2in tall, with very short, dark hair with a straight hair line and a bald patch at the back.
He has blue eyes, a dimple on his chin, a red mark like a burn on his bottom lip, peeling skin on his cheekbones and stubble.
He wore a long-sleeved dark grey jumper with a round neck, black tracksuit bottoms with a grey and white stripe down each leg and black Adidas trainers.
‘The offender needs to be caught and held responsible for his actions which have caused a nasty injury to the lady and much distress,’ DC Harris added.
