Police are appealing for witnesses following a suspected acid attack on a couple in Daventry by two men on a moped.
It happened this afternoon (Saturday, August 26) after a 23-year-old man and a 19-year-old woman had a noxious substance, believed to be acid, squirted at them as they stood at a zebra crossing in Park Leys.
The men pulled up beside the victims and then flicked a noxious substance at them.
One of the offenders then produced a machete before they drove off.
The man suffered burns to his forehead and the woman to her legs and have been transferred to Northampton General Hospital.
The rider of the moped is described as wearing grey joggers, trainers, a cream-coloured hoodie and a white helmet.
The passenger was white and had dark hair and was wearing dark clothing.
The substance used is now under analysis to determine what it was.
- Anyone with information should contact Northamptonshire Police on 101, quoting incident 53 of August 26, or call Crimestoppers, in confidence, on 0800 555111.
