Investigators are looking to speak with additional victims and witnesses, after police arrested a man in connection with a series of assaults where women reported having a “chemical liquid” splashed or sprayed on their legs.

On Nov. 24 police responded to two incidents in which women had an unknown liquid splashed on their legs. These women reported feeling burning sensations and skin irritation after a hot-feeling liquid was splashed on their legs.

On Thursday (Dec. 29), officers responded to a report that a man had sprayed an unknown liquid on a group of women on the 1100 block of Government Street. The victims reported that the liquid had damaged their nylons and caused a burning sensation on their skin.
