A suspect with face tattoos is being hunted by police after two cousins were sprayed with ‘acid’ as they were celebrating a 21st birthday.
Jameel Muhktar and Resham Khan were left with ‘life changing’ injuries on 9..15am last Wednesday as the pair were celebrating Resham’s 21st birthday.
John Tomlin, 24, is now wanted for questioning and should not be approached by the public, the Met Police have warned.
Jameel, 37, is said to be ‘unrecognisable’ following the attack and had surgery earlier this week to treat his horrific injuries.
Resham and Jameel had stopped at traffic lights when they were approached by a man who threw the toxic substance at Resham through the window.
The attacker then ran around the car to throw more acid at Jameel before fleeing the scene in Tollgate Road, Canning Town, east London.
