A man has been arrested following a reported “acid attack” in a Glasgow neighbourhood which left a woman in hospital.
Emergency services were called to Mingulay Street, Milton, at around 6.35pm on Monday after receiving reports of a “disturbance”.
A 37-year-old woman was taken to the Glasgow Royal Infirmary. Her current condition is unknown.
A neighbour told STV News of the moment a child ran out of a house screaming following an “acid attack”.
The neighbour, who did not wish to be named, said: “There were a lot of police and ambulances and the place was taped off.
“He threw acid at her. A little boy ran out of the house screaming. He could have got the child.
“It’s such a sick thing to do.”
Officers confirmed that a 37-year-old man has since been arrested and charged in connection with the incident.
He is due to appear at Glasgow Sheriff Court.
