A toddler and her mother have suffered potentially life-changing injuries after an alkaline substance was thrown at them in an attack which saw 11 people taken to hospital.
The Metropolitan Police said the 31-year-old woman and her three-year-old daughter, alongside her other daughter, aged eight, remain in hospital following the incident in South London on Wednesday.
A manhunt is now underway for the suspect, who is believed to be known to the mother, after he also allegedly threw the younger child to the ground in the attack in Lessar Avenue, near Clapham Common, at around 7:25 p.m. Police said in his attempt to drive away from the scene, the attacker crashed into a stationary vehicle and made off on foot.
Three members of the public who came to the aid of the family have all been discharged from hospital with minor burns injuries.
The force said five officers who responded to the incident have also been treated and have now left hospital. Irish Examiner
