The 32-year-old vendor was pedaling on Deeble Street near Sutterville Road and 24th Street on Monday afternoon when he was confronted by Karen Lynn Washington (photo right). Washington, 56, believed he was the same vendor who short-changed her about a week ago.
Police allege that Washington removed a big bottle of bleach from her car and then threw the liquid at him. Some of the bleach hit his face and mouth, while the majority of the liquid soaked his clothing.
Washington was arrested on suspicion of assault with caustic chemicals. It does not appear that the victim was seriously injured, police said.
