An employee suffered a burned arms Wednesday when someone threw a caustic chemical at her at the Department of Children and Family Services office in Santa Fe Springs.

The attack was reported about 4:25 p.m. at the office at 10355 Slusher Drive, Santa Fe Springs police Lt. Bryan Ellis said.

Two suspects, a male and a female, approached the victim in a parking lot and without provocation threw the chemical at the woman and fled the scene before police arrived, police said.

The woman ran into a bathroom to wash the substance from her arm while someone else called police, according to Ellis.

She suffered moderate burns to her arms and was taken to a hospital where she was being treated, police said.

Detailed descriptions of the suspects were not made available. The female had a pony tail and both fled in a blue or gray sedan, police said.

Investigators were checking for possible video at nearby businesses and interviewing witnesses in an attempt to identify the culprits, Ellis said.
