The assaults involved victims having their mopeds stolen by two men on a moped, police added.

Metropolitan Police said they were treating the separate attacks within 90 minutes on Thursday night as linked. His injuries were not life-threatening, police said.

Trump Jr.'s meeting is a game-changer
And on top of all this, there is Trump himself , who has also been far from transparent - which may soon come back to haunt him. Trump has not had any public events since he returned from the G-20 summit, and he left for France Wednesday evening.

The Met said the teenage suspect remains in custody at an east London police station.

Police said a man was doused with a corrosive liquid around 15 minutes later on Cazenove Road causing "life-changing" facial injuries.

A man on a moped was in traffic when two men on a moped pulled up alongside him, sprayed liquid in his face, before stealing his vehicle.

One man has been left with "life changing injuries" with three others taken to hospital for treatment.

"Following the incidents in Hackney, officers were made aware of a similar attack reported in Islington".

Two Australian sisters were seriously burnt in April after acid was flung into the Mangle nightclub in East London. Both experienced "painful" burns, though their faces were not touched.

Resham Khan, 21, was celebrating her birthday with her cousin Jameel Mukhtar when they were attacked, they claim.
