A 34-year-old woman who was attacked by a chemical in Braywick Park in Maidenhead on Thursday has had a skin graft.

The victim, who was walking her dog in the morning, said a man ran past her and poured a substance over her head, causing burns to her face and chest.

Police and the ambulance service attended the scene at about 10am.

She has had surgery for her injuries and was released from hospital yesterday.

The chemical used in the attack is still not known but police are treating it as an isolated incident. The motive is also not known.

Sergeant Stefan McLaughlin, investigating officer, said: “We are very keen to hear from anyone with information about the incident who was either in the park before, during, or after the incident occurred."

Call police on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.
