Chemical thrown at woman's face: police

A woman who went outside to investigate rocks being thrown at her regional NSW home then had a chemical thrown at her, police say.

Shortly before 9.45pm last night, the 34-year-old woman was at home in Wagga Wagga when she heard rocks being thrown at her house.

The woman's partner went outside and saw a woman and child running away.

A short time later the woman went outside, where she was confronted by a woman known to her, carrying a bottle, police say.

The woman threw the bottle at the victim before running away.

The bottle broke and some of the liquid splashed onto the woman's face, causing a burning sensation.

She remains in Wagga Wagga Base Hospital for observation.

Police believe the liquid could be chlorine, but say investigations are continuing.
