Police said they believed woman in her 30s was not the intended target of attack by men

Two men have been arrested on suspicion of GBH after a “noxious substance” was thrown in a woman’s face at a Suffolk pub, resulting in the temporary loss of sight in one eye.

Suffolk police said two men, both 25, were arrested on Wednesday afternoon in connection with the incident at the Glad Abbot pub on Glastonbury Road in Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk, at about 11pm last Friday.

Police had previously said that two men, one wearing a hooded top and one wearing a baseball cap, entered the pub and threw the substance from a bottle.

Officers were not treating the incident as a random attack, but believe the woman in her 30s was not the intended target.

Police said this week that they were investigating possible connections between the attack and a dangerous driving incident reported just after 10pm on the same evening.

Officers received “a number of calls” about two cars, believed to be a Ford Fiesta and a Vauxhall Insignia, driving dangerously and crashing into each other in the Out Risbygate and Newmarket Road area of Bury St Edmunds.
