A 21-year-old pre-med college student was doused with acid, leaving her blind and disfigured. Nafiah Ikram, 21, was attacked outside of her Long Island, New York, home in March, in an incident that her family members believed had been planned. Security footage caught the act as Ikram stepped out of a car with her mother, just before the attack.
While physicians aren’t sure if Ikram will ever fully see again, investigators are trying to determine who would do this to the victim. Ikram said she was likely targeted but has no idea why. Police said the suspect in the New York incident wore a black hooded sweatshirt during the incident and was holding a white cup. He stands around 6-feet-2-inches tall and has a “skinny build.”
