Man attacks woman with corrosive liquid outside Piraeus hospital

Police on Monday arrested a 58-year-old man after he attacked a woman with a corrosive liquid. The incident took place outside the Nikaia General Hospital, near Piraeus, shortly after 10 a.m.

The man sprayed a so-far unknown substance on the 64-year-old woman after an argument they had in front of the hospital.

He initially claimed that the victim was his mother-in-law, later that she was his partner.

The woman is being treated at Attikon Hospital in Haidari, western Athens. The extent of her injuries is unknown.

Police said the man suffers from serious mental health issues and was hospitalized in the past. He told officers that he was homeless.
