Thrown In Face
Just days after Bethany Storro was viciously attacked by a stranger who threw a cup of acid in her face, a second woman is being treated for acid burns, victim of an eerily similar crime.

Derri Velarde, 41, was walking in the parking lot of an apartment complex in Mesa, Ariz. when a woman suddenly appeared and threw a cup of acid at her.

“I saw…a woman, you know, walking up with what looked like a drink in her hand,” Velarde told local television station KPNX-TV. “It immediately just started to burn, I was on fire.”

Police are still searching for the woman, who fled the scene after the attack.

Velarde is being treated for second-degree burns to her face and chest, The Associated Press reports.

The incident bears an uncanny resemblance to the attack Storro suffered on Monday in Vancouver, Wash, leading to fears that the first crime launched a copycat.

Storro, 28, was celebrating a new job when a woman walked up to her and asked “Hey pretty girl, do you want to drink this?”

The woman then threw a cup of acid into Storro’s face, burning her skin.
