Attacking a Toddler in Worcester


The mother of the acid victim is "Middle Eastern" and "was fleeing a family dispute and living in a safe house at the time of the attack and was the intended target." In addition to the three-year-old victim, she had two other children with whom she's been living for the past eight months after "difficulties within her family." According to a police source, "the parties she was in a dispute with found out where she had moved to and that's how this horrendous incident has happened." Also, the caustic substance "was targeted at her. The child just happened to get in the way." In other words, same old same old.
