Two teenagers have been found guilty of causing extensive burns to a man’s face after throwing a corrosive liquid at him in a case of mistaken identity.

Aaron Isaac, 19, of Elverson Road, Lewisham, and a 16-year-old boy from Mitcham were both found guilty of throwing a corrosive fluid with intent to cause grievous bodily harm.

They were convicted at Chelmsford Crown Court today Thursday, 8 October.

It's after a man had a corrosive liquid thrown over him at a block of flats in Bramble Road, Witham, at around 10.45am on Friday, August 8 2014.

The victim, Wayne Ingold, aged in his 50s, had gone to collect his post from the communal entrance to a block of flats when he encountered two men banging on the door.

Following a brief exchange, the liquid - which was in a glass bottle - was thrown over Wayne and the defendants ran off.

He suffered severe injuries to his hands, body and face and had to have skin grafts, which are still ongoing.

The suspects were caught following extensive investigation.

Isaac and the 16-year-old boy were remanded in custody until they are sentenced at Chelmsford Crown Court on November 6.

The judge warned they face significant custodial sentences.

"This was a sickening and unprovoked attack by two very dangerous young men on an innocent man who was simply going about his business.

"This attack left the victim with life-changing injuries.

"He will not only be dealing with the physical scars but also the mental scars for a long time to come.

"I hope today’s verdicts bring a small level of closure for him.”
