Appeal following suspected noxious substance attack

The police are investigating after a woman was targeted in a suspected noxious substance attack in Lambeth.

Officers were called to Brixton Road, SW9 at 1:45pm by London Ambulance Service (LAS) on Tuesday (8 May) following reports of a woman being the victim of a suspected noxious substance attack whilst on a bus.

The woman believed to be aged in her twenties was treated at the scene as she got off the bus. She was then taken to central London hospital for treatment.

Her condition is not life changing or life threatening. She has no major burns.

Enquiries continue to trace the single male suspect involved. This incident appears to be targeted and not a random attack.

The bus – which is believed to be the scene of the attack – continues to be examined.

At this stage, this attack is being treated as GBH.

Anyone with information is requested to call police on 101 quoting CAD 4258/8May or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111. You can also tweet police via @MetCC.
