Drunk man squirts acid in baby’s face, Gdansk

A man threw acid at a nine-month old baby, its parents and another man on a tram in Gdansk, on Friday.

A man, Andrzej S,, was having an argument with the baby's father when he suddenly produced a syringe filled with sulfuric acid.

"The victims were burned on their faces and on their hands. The burns are first and second degree,” said a spokesperson adding that at least one person has already left the hospital.

The fight took place on Friday, but the police only informed the media about the incident Monday.

Thirty eight year old Andrzej S., who was very drunk say police, ran away after throwing the acid but was caught 20 minutes later. Police say the attack was clearly premeditated.
