Medical student caught on CCTV disguising himself before acid attack on ex-girlfriend

Telegraph, 08 Oct 2021
A medical student used a fat suit to disguise himself as a woman and throw acid over his ex-girlfriend, a court has heard.

Dr Rym Alaoui, 25, suffered “life-changing” injuries when she was attacked on the doorstep of her Brighton home in May by Milad Rouf, her ex-boyfriend.

She was rushed to the Royal Sussex County Hospital, where she works, suffering from injuries to her face and chest. As a result of the attack, she has been left blind in her right eye and is unable to close her eyelids at night.

On Thursday at Lewes Crown Court, Rouf, 25, was sentenced to 15 years imprisonment after pleading guilty to maliciously throwing sulphuric acid at his former girlfriend with the intent to maim and disfigure her. He will serve 11 years in jail with an extended licence period of four years after his release.
