A yob who yelled "I've got acid" before squirting fluid into a drinker's face outside a pub is being hunted by police after he was caught on CCTV.

He leapt from a auto before firing the liquid from a bottle at a group of people, hitting one man in the face.

One man, who threw a bowl of dog water over his face after being squirted was by the liquid, escaped unhurt, police said. The man was not hurt during the incident as he was wearing glasses and the liquid was believed to be cleaning fluid.

The incident occurred following a series of acid attacks in the United Kingdom, including five people who were hit in the face by a corrosive substance across north and east London in less than 90 minutes.

"He didn't report feeling any burning sensation and was thankfully unhurt".

Police believe the attack was prompted when the victim's group told the occupants of the vehicle to slow down because they were driving anti-socially.

It comes less than a week after a spate of acid attacks in London, which left six seriously injured.

He leapt out of a auto driving on Main Street in Dickens Heath, Solihull, after a group outside The Chalice shouted at the driver to slow down. The attacker shouted "I've got acid" but we believe it was actually an ammonia-based cleaning fluid.

The attacker was said to be in a blue T-shirt, beige shorts, shoes and with a "man bag" across his shoulder.

Police have arrested a man thought to have been behind the wheel of the auto, seized a vehicle and have also recovered a bottle of clear liquid.

A 21-year-old man from Solihull has been charged with a public order offence and is due to appear at Birmingham Magistrates Court on 16 August.
