SILVER SPRING, Md. (AP) — Bleach was sprayed into a person’s eyes during an attack at a Maryland mall, and police say they're searching for two teenage suspects.

Montgomery County police said Monday that officers responded to the Westfield Wheaton mall in Silver Spring around 8 p.m. on April 15 for a report of an assault.

Police say detectives learned that two people approached the victim inside the mall, pushed her to the ground and began kicking her in the face.

Before they fled, police say one sprayed bleach in the victim’s eyes.

Police released surveillance video of the suspects described as females in their late teens and they are asking for help identifying them.
