Police investigating acid attack against pregnant woman


Police Tuesday were investigating an acid attack against a pregnant woman in central Athens.

According to reports, the 25-year-old victim filed a police complaint Tuesday after an unknown assailant stopped her in the street in the central district of Kypseli shortly after midnight last Sunday and placed a scarf soaked with an acid substance on her face.

The incident reportedly occurred on Ipirou Street, near the Church of Agia Kyriaki, after the assailant stepped out of a car and approached her.

The woman suffered burns to her face and received treatment at Evangelismos Hospital.
