GREAT BRITAIN — A teen male was sentenced to eight years in jail Friday for spraying acid on three young men as they sat on a bench at a train station.
The 17-year-old attacker is Alexander Bassey. He admitted to three charges of causing grievous harm, and showed no remorse at the time of sentencing, according to The Guardian. The three victims suffered permanent scars and one of them may have suffered a life-changing eye injury.
The Sun reported that the teens said they thought they were going to die when splashed with the highly corrosive substance that “burned into their flesh.”
