Attacker douses women with highly caustic liquid

A man on a motorcycle stopped and confronted a 32-year-old woman while she was walking with a girlfriend Tuesday night. The man threw some sort of liquid on the woman that caused burns on 80 percent of her body.

The attack happened in Pueblo Cívil de Golfito, and by Wednesday morning the woman, identified by the last name of  Marchena, had been transported to Hospital San Juan de Dios in San José

Her injuries include to her face.

The man appeared to be prepared for the attack because he was dressed in black and threw the liquid without any words.

Judicial investigators from Ciudad Neily are looking into any interpersonal conflicts in the woman’s past to try to identify suspects, said the Judicial Investigating Organization.
