Detectives say it is an ‘isolated’ incident and there is no wider threat to the public. 

Detective Inspector Kirsty Wyatt, of West CID, said: ‘It is only a matter of luck that this victim did not receive more significant injuries and we are treating this extremely seriously.

‘We are carrying out our own enquiries to trace the suspect, but we would also like to appeal for the public’s help to find him. If anyone sees Blundell or knows where he may be I would ask them not to approach him but to contact police as a matter of urgency.’

‘Anyone with information is asked to call 101 quoting log 0646 of March 3. For immediate sightings please call 999.’

Ammonia is a colourless highly irritating gas with a sharp suffocating odor. It dissolves easily in water to form an ammonium hydroxide solution which can cause irritation and burns.
