Two teens were hospitalized Tuesday in a suspected acid attack in east London, police said.
The victims were Asians, according to witnesses, and the incident follows a series of similar attacks in the past few weeks.
Following the attack in Bethnal Green, the victims notified police, according to a Metropolitan Police statement.
They were given medical assistance at the scene and taken to a local hospital with burns.
"They were two Bengali boys who came into the shop. They had acid on their face and they were burning. Their skin was peeling off,” local media quoted a shop owner.
Earlier this month, delivery driver Jabed Hussain was riding a moped in esst London when two men on a moped pulled up on his left side and threw acid on him. The attack was the first of five in a single evening.
Jameel Muhktar, 37, and his 21-year old cousin Resham Khan received life changing injuries in an acid attack in June while they were in a car. Muhktar described the attack as “Islamophobic” in an emotional interview with Channel 4 News.
John Tomlin, 24, was charged with two counts of grievous bodily harm in that attack.
