New police figures reveal that the U.K. is averaging at least 15 barbaric acid attacks a week.

The figures, first reported by The Mirror, show a total of 2,602 reported attacks from January 2015 to May of this year, averaging out to 15 per week. In comparison, there were only 100 total attacks reported from 2007 to 2011.

Stunningly, nearly 75% of such attacks have been carried out in London, a city often praised by the Left for its multiculturalism and tolerance.

And the figures actually reflect a sunnier outlook than the reality of the situation, since four police forces neglected to provide data regarding acid attacks when it was requested of them. Still, Acid Survivors Trust International (ASTI) found the U.K. to have one of the highest rates of attacks per capita in the world.

To make matters worse, the data shows a surge in children perpetrating and being victimized by acid attacks. “[O]ne victim was just two years old when they were doused in acid, while in Cumbria two girls, aged four and five, were targeted by a six and nine-year-old,” notes The Sun.

The phenomenon of throwing acid in an unsuspecting person’s face is common in some Muslim-majority counties, typically victimizing women. But with the attacks in the U.K., according to ASTI, a majority of the victims are men.

Curiously, though, it’s common for victims to be unwilling to press charges. “Since 2014 about 74% of investigations have been wound down due to problems with identifying perpetrators, or victims being unwilling to press charges,” the BBC reported.

As previously noted by The Daily Wire, figures provided by Metro show a correlation between cities with high immigrant rates and spiked attacks.
