Woman splashed in face with bleach in Potrero Hill 

A woman was splashed in the face with bleach and struck with a glass bottle on a violent Fourth of July in The City’s southeastern neighborhoods, police said.

Police received a call about the bleach attack in the Potrero Hill housing projects around 10 p.m., police Officer Albie Esparza said Monday.

The victim, a 25-year-old woman, told responding cops that she was with a friend in front of her home in the 900 block of Connecticut Street when a white four-door Honda Acura pulled up.

A woman in her 40s hopped out of the car and confronted the victim as if she knew her, Esparza said. The victim denied knowing the suspect, he said.

The enraged suspect fetched a bottle of bleach and a glass bottle from her car. She splashed bleach on the victim’s face, then struck her over the head with the glass bottle, Esparza said.

The suspect fled in the Honda. There has been no arrest.

The motive for the attack is not known, Esparza said. During questioning, the victim became irate and uncooperative with police, he said.

She was treated at San Francisco General Hospital for non-life-threatening injuries, police said.
