LONDON — Bri­tish po­lice have charged a teenager in a spate of London acid at­tacks.

The Metropoli­tan Po­lice force said late Satur­day that a 16-year-old boy faces 15 charges, in­clud­ing griev­ous bod­ily harm. The boy, who can’t be named be­cause of his age, was ar­rested af­ter five moped rid­ers were sprayed with a cor­ro­sive sub­stance dur­ing a 90-minute pe­riod last week.

One man was left with life-chang­ing in­juries, po­lice said. At least two of those at­tacked were driv­ers for food-de­liv­ery ser­vices De­liv­eroo and UberEATS.

A 15-year-old boy who was also ar­rested has been re­leased on bond.
