Acid Attack On Doorstep: Teenager Arrested

A 15-year-old boy has been arrested by police investigating an acid attack that left a woman with horrific injuries to her face and upper body.

The 28-year-old victim was sprayed in the face on her own doorstep in Romford, northeast London.

She answered the door to a stranger who asked to speak to "Michelle" shortly before 9pm on April 30.

The attacker returned about 30 minutes later and squirted an acidic substance in her face from a bottle, according to police.
