Anne-Marie Hutson, the trainee nurse who was doused with acid last Wednesday morning, is recovering at the Burn Care Unit of the Georgetown Hospital where she remains a patient.
Hutson, 33, told Stabroek News yesterday that she is feeling better since the attack and she was scheduled to undergo surgery for her injuries yesterday. More surgeries are expected in her future, she added.
No one has since been arrested following the attack, which was carried out at the corner of New Market and Thomas streets as Hutson was heading to work.
The men threw the substance on Hutson as she passed them and then escaped. The woman had said she initially thought it was water that was thrown on her because the liquid felt cold but seconds after her skin began to burn.
Because of the burning Hutson said she jumped into a puddle of water and then ran to the Georgetown Hospital where she sought medical attention. She had said that she believes a former partner was behind the attack.
