London Acid Attacks: Police Arrest Two Teenagers

British police arrested two teenagers on Friday after a string of acid attacks in London. Across 90 minutes in the city's east, five moped riders were splashed in the face with acid, causing horrific injury in at least one case. In the first incident, two assailants on a moped in Hackney stopped next to a 32-year-old man and threw acid in his face before one of them stole the victim's moped.

Over the next 90 minutes, three other men in Hackney and one in neighbouring Islington were attacked with corrosive substances, police said. All the victims were attacked while riding mopeds. Police then arrested a 15-year-old boy in Stoke Newington, northeast London, and a 16-year-old boy elsewhere in north London on suspicion of grievous bodily harm and robbery.

Food delivery companies Deliveroo and UberEATS said two of their couriers had been attacked.
