Largo woman charged with throwing acid on victim

Posted: Updated:
TAMPA, FL (WFLA) -

A Largo woman has been arrested after police say she poured a bottle of muriatic acid onto a person's face. She was scheduled to appear in court Monday.

Largo police said surveillance video shows 39-year-old Melissa Diane Egbert throw acid onto the unidentified victim's face, then jump into a car and drive off. Egbert was charged Sunday with aggravated battery with a deadly weapon and is being held without bail. It's unclear whether she had retained an attorney.

The Tampa Bay Times reports the victim's condition was not released.

Muriatic acid, also known as hydrochloric acid, is used for cleaning concrete, tile and other hard surfaces.
