Something tells me there is a very sinister aspect to this story. I hope the details about who, and why, become known soon.

A teenage boy suffered ‘horrendous’ injuries that could leave him blind after acid was thrown into his face as he was enjoying a walk in woodland.

It is feared the 16-year-old could be permanently disfigured after suffering severe burns to his face, including his eyes, and upper body.

The unnamed boy is being treated at a specialist hospital in London with his parents at his bedside.

A Hampshire Constabulary spokesman said it was ‘too early for prognosis’ and that they are still investigating what the acid was and what container it had been in.

Two men have been arrested by detectives investigating the chemical attack, which happened in darkness as the boy walked near woods in his hometown of Yateley, near Farnborough, Hampshire.

The 46-year-old man from Yateley and a 33-year-old man from Farnborough have been released on bail pending further inquiries.

 

Police denied the attack was a drug deal gone wrong or over a financial matter or girl. They confirmed the young victim was white and British.

Paramedics were called to the scene and gave the boy immediate treatment for the facial injuries before he was rushed to hospital.

The teenager, who has not been named by police, was left writhing in agony on the pathway as the acid burnt through his clothes and skin.

The attackers, who were wearing dark clothes, ran off before emergency services arrived.

A spokesman for Hampshire Police said that the attacker was a stranger to the teenager, but added it was not a random incident.

    Released? Sounds more like tolerated rather than take the risk of offending the easily and perpetually offended members of a certain savage segment of society.
    Taking a guess here, but it sounds like an angry dad/uncle (of the sort you’d expect) was out to interfere with a budding romance between this 16 year old young man and a female kin of theirs.

    To throw acid in a person’s face has to be the most vicious and cowardly form of assault. Even your worst enemy does not deserve that, but saying that, violence breeds anger and I hope that those who carried out this attack receive similar punishment. Acid should be thrown in their faces.
    Whether the perpetrators are Muslim or not, doesn’t matter. Muslims are probably more responsible for carrying out this sort of crime than any other beasts on Earth. If it turns out that the Muzz are responsible then I hope that every decent citizen in Britain goes out and burns down their local mosque!

    I don’t think I have ever heard of a Western Criminal throwing acid into someones face it has probably happened but I never heard of it. I would love to know the motive and why the police are so fast to say it wasn’t a random incident.

  4. Softly Bob says:

    A belated thought to add here.
    Are the liberal anti-gun lobbyists going to preach about having dangerous chemicals such as acids banned? In light of attacks like this, you think that they would.
    Don’t hold your breath!
