A TEENAGER has been arrested in connection with a bleach attack in Oxford.

Thames Valley Police yesterday arrested an 18-year-old woman over the incident in Knights Road, Blackbird Leys, on June 16, when household bleach was thrown over a 42-year-old man. 

She was arrested on suspicion of conspiracy to assault occasioning grievous bodily harm and has been released under investigation.

It is believed to be related to the same attack in a public toilet on Knights Road on June 16, which left the victim in hospital.

He did not suffer any long term injuries, while four police officers were also taken to hospital as a precaution.

The force has repeatedly appealed for witnesses following the assault, which gave the man a 'burning sensation' after liquid was thrown over him from a clear bottle.

Police have previously appealed to find two people described as 'black men in dark clothing' in relation to the attack.

Investigating officer, DS Tom Mansfield, of Force CID at Oxford, said: “I would like to continue to appeal for witnesses to this incident.

“Anyone with information is asked to call 101, quoting 43190181105.”
