Detectives have released CCTV images of three men they wish to identify and speak to after liquid was thrown at a man in Jarrom Street in May.
On Saturday 19 May a 20-year-old man was approached in Leicester and a liquid was thrown in his face. He sustained significant injuries and has not regained the sight in one of his eyes.
The liquid is not believed to be acid based but further tests are being carried out.
The incident took place around 9.30am in the street at Jarrom Court. Enquiries into the circumstances surrounding the incident are continuing and officers are urging the public to help identify the men in the images.
Detective Constable Chris Fox is investigating the incident, he said: “The victim was discharged from hospital after a few days but he is still undergoing treatment as an outpatient, the prognosis is that he may regain the sight in his eye and is recovering well.
“You can help us move this investigation forward by getting on touch if you recognise any of the men in the images. Even if you’re not 100% sure we would still ask that you get in touch.
“The incident took place in broad daylight in a busy area of Leicester, not far from the Leicester Royal Infirmary hospital. If you witnessed it and haven’t yet spoken with officers please call us.”
Anyone with any information is asked to contact DC 2011 Chris Fox on 101, quoting crime reference number 18*228372.
