According to the Metropolitan Police one of the victims of the attacks suffered "life changing" injuries as a result an attack on their face.

Police have arrested one 16-year-old boy on suspicion of grievous bodily harm and robbery, and he is now in custody at an east London police station, according to CNN.

A 16-YEAR-OLD has been arrested after series of acid attacks against scooter riders in London on Thursday night.

20 minutes later, at around 10.50pm, another victim was sprayed with liquid on the Upper Street junction with Highbury Corner, Islington.

Any witnesses, anyone with information or anyone in possession of footage of these incidents should call police on 101.

"A male, in his teens has been arrested on suspicion of grievous bodily harm and robbery".

Delivery driver Jabed Hussain (32) was one of five people attacked with acid in London on Thursday, in incidents that police believe are linked.

Clark said "I'm aware of rumors circulating that the victims were all food delivery riders set up in advance of the attacks".

British police have charged a teenager with a spate of London acid attacks, as authorities considered whether tougher sentences would curb a spike in assaults with corrosive liquids. The first victim had the acid thrown into his face shortly before one of the suspects jumped onto his scooter and sped away.

London police did not discuss the possibility of a hate crime on Friday, and said that the victims were part of multiple groups.

"I was just screaming because it's burning on my face, and I'm just screaming for the water", Hussain told the Telegraph.

"It's already an offence to carry acid or a corrosive substance to cause harm... we are working with the police to see what more we could do", she said.

Five separate male victims, all on mopeds, were allegedly targeted by two attackers also on a moped.

Shadow Home Secretary and Stoke Newington MP Dianne Abbott responded this morning by tweeting: 'More awful acid attacks, Why would you scar someone for life just to steal a moped'.

Meanwhile, the Government has announced it will outline a new strategy on combating acid attacks in the Commons on Monday.
