A man in his 60s has had a chemical thrown in his face in Cambridge.
It happened in Park Street car park, around 2.50pm yesterday (Thursday, November 24).
The suspect, who is in his mid 20s, insulted the victims wife, tensions rose and the victim pushed a bicycle belonging to the suspect.
The suspect then threw a chemical, believed to be similar to ammonia, in the victims face before leaving the scene on a bicycle along with another man.

The suspect is described as:
- White and quite thickly set
- Light coloured hair
- Wearing a beige/light coloured long sleeved top
- Accompanied by a 5'10" Asian or mixed race man in his 20s
This was an incredibly serious incident which could have had life changing consequences for the victim.
