A 21-YEAR-OLD Good Samaritan, who went to the aid of a friend who was being attacked, suffered burns to his face after an unknown liquid was thrown at him.

The man was injured on Saturday night, September 6, after he left a pub in Raglan Street at about 10.30 to 11pm to go for a cigarette.

After seeing a group of four or five men - thought to be in their late teens to 20s - starting on a man that he knew, the 21-year-old went over to try and intervene at which point one of the group threw liquid into his face. He thought it was a drink and thought no more of it.

In the morning he discovered burns on his cheek, neck and chest and went to the James Paget University Hospital in Gorleston where medical staff said that the burns had been caused by an unknown chemical.

Police need to trace the group involved and are asking anyone who may have been in the area at the time or anyone with information about them to call Lowestoft CID on 01986 835300.
