Nurse attacked with acid

acid-attackIt was at this location at the corners of Thomas and New Market streets that nurse Annmarie Hutson was doused with acid.

There are reports that the woman was heading into work and encountered a man standing at the corner awaiting her arrival. Eyewitnesses told Capitol News that they observed the suspect standing calmly in front of this Chinese restaurant for several minutes before the nurse’s arrival.

The woman was burnt from her neck and other parts of her lower body. According to the reports the nurse ran into the nearby drain calling for help. Her colleagues quickly came to her rescue and hurried her away to the GPHC where she was admitted to the burns unit.

Eyewitnesses told this Newscast that the suspect then jumped onto a motorcycle and rode away from the scene leaving the nurse in her agony.

Some of her colleagues told Capitol News from all indication that the suspect was known to the woman. It is unclear what is the motive for the senseless act.

The Police are looking into the matter.
