    A Peruvian immigrant living in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, suffered acid burns to his face in an alleged racist attack, according to police, the victim's sister and NBC affiliate WTMJ in Milwaukee

    "An unknown suspect got into a verbal altercation with the 42-year-old male victim when the argument escalated and the suspect threw acid on the victim causing 2nd degree burns," Milwaukee police said in a statement Saturday.


    Police are searching for a white male suspect who was last seen carrying a black satchel and a silver aluminum container filled with battery acid, the statement said.

    WTMJ reported that the victim and witnesses claim the suspect shouted "go back to your country," as he threw the acid.

    The alleged incident happened Friday at around 8:25 p.m. The sister of the Peruvian man told NBC News in a Facebook message that the argument occurred after he was approached by a white man in his 60s.

    She confirmed to NBC News that her brother said the man who allegedly threw the acid said, "Go back to your country."

    The sister gave NBC permission to use a photo of her brother showing his burn injuries, but she asked that her and his name be withheld. She said that since the suspect has not been caught, her brother fears for his safety,

    Man, 61, accused of throwing acid on Latino man's face in possible hate crime

    MILWAUKEE – A 61-year-old man has been arrested in connection with an acid attack on Milwaukee's south side Friday night that police are investigating as a hate crime.

    Mahud Villalaz, 42, suffered second-degree burns to his face after a man he described as being white and in his 50s or 60s berated him and threw acid at him.

    In security video first obtained by WISN-TV, the two men are seen talking in front of a restaurant when the suspect points at Villalaz and then tosses the acid at his face.

    Villalaz can be seen stumbling away from the man, who then slowly walks toward Villalaz.

    A GoFundMe page has been established to help pay for Villalaz's medical bills and lost wages while he recovers and gets additional medical treatment. Villalaz is a welder and has blurred vision in his left eye stemming from the attack.

    As of Monday morning, more than $17,000 had been raised, surpassing a $15,000 goal.

    On the GoFundMe page, his sister Priscilla Villalaz thanked police for making the arrest and thanked well-wishers who reached out to them.

    #BREAKING - Video shows the moment a man was hit with battery acid.

    Obviously premeditated because he carried the acid with him.

    I'm not sure what major political ramifications this has.

    Horrible acts that you won't find anyone condoning.

    I mean, are we suddenly going to look into every crime and try to pin which political leader's fault it is?

    Have you SEEN the numbers coming from Democrat run cities? Chicago? NY?

    Do you REALLY want to get into that? I don't think you do. I'd just take this drive-by attack and continue to drive away.

    This is fake. All racism is fake unless it is against precious white males. Just ask any idiot conservative.

  9. That's despicable. I hope they find the perp and he gets harsh punishment.

    The men are facing each other, yet the "burns" are on the left side of his face. Nobody carries battery acid with them.
    I'm very skeptical about this one.
    Too similar to the Smollet case.

    Post #2 has the link to the video of the attack!

    The perp is RIGHT HANDED so the victim naturally got the fluid on the LEFT side of his face.

    Never assume a perp with intent does not carry aid.

    He was also arrested!!

    Considering all the death and destruction daily in America' blue precincts why would they be concerned with one assault in Milwaukee? And how about we get the facts first rather than left wing accusations and nuttiness?

    That all too conveniently staged right in front of a video camera? And it just happened to miss the "victim's" eye?

    Very true. Also, the left's long history of faking hate crimes will work against them in this case.

    The victim was lucky but he has blurred vision in his left eye s a result of the attack so it did NOT miss his eye. The camera was a
    SURVEILLANCE STREET CAMERA

    Both of these details are in post #2 here.


    Read it!
