Teen charged in London acid attacks
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.
