A GIRL was sprayed with what she thought was water when a van drove past.
But a court heard the liquid sprayed on the 13-year-old in Penistone Road, Huddersfield, was actually bleach.
Bradford Crown Court heard the girl’s cardigan was damaged by the liquid but she was unhurt.
Another pedestrian was also sprayed with bleach by Mohammed Khan, a passenger in the van.
The court heard Khan, 26, of Springbank Crescent, Huddersfield, said that he thought it was a joke.
Khan admitted common assault and also racially-aggravated assault, after the court was told he hurled racist abuse at one of the pedestrians.
He was ordered to do 180 hours unpaid work, to pay £600 costs and to pay £150 compensation to each of the pedestrians.
