On July 7, 2015 at around 3:25 p.m., CCTV cameras captured an attack on Mohammed Tariq, a shopkeeper in Tividale.
The suspect calmly walked around inside the shop for approximately 90 seconds. Then he went to the counter with some coins to pay for a carton of juice. Without warning, he squirted a liquid believed to be weak ammonia in the victim’s face. He then took out a knife and slashed the shopkeeper’s cheek.
The Police are now searching for the attacker. He was wearing a black baseball cap, a black Nike top, and dark pants at the time of the attack.
