A 28-year-old St. Louis Park man is charged with assault after purportedly throwing battery acid onto a woman's face.
Jarso Yohannes Adem said that he splashed battery acid on his ex-girlfriend's face when he approached her in the street and she refused to talk to him, reported the Star Tribune.
A jogger told the Pioneer Press that he heard the woman scream and chased Adem into a parking lot, where he was arrested.
The victim, whose name and age were not released, suffered blistering and redness on her face, neck, and left hand, according to police.
Adem is jailed on a $50,000 bail, reports the Star Tribune.
