VIDEO: Virginia Officer Burned in Caustic Liquid Attack

A Norfolk, VA, police sergeant's face, eyes, and hand were chemically burned Monday when a man reportedly attacked him with a caustic liquid. The sergeant was treated at and released from a local hospital.

A police department spokeswoman said 51-year-old Dale Patrick Bright of Virginia Beach approached the sergeant just before 10 a.m. outside a Dunkin' Donuts and tossed the caustic liquid into the sergeant's face.

Investigators believe the attack was unprovoked.

Bright is being held without bond at the Norfolk City Jail on a charge of Malicious Wounding by Means of Caustic Substance, 13 News Now reports.
