Northamptonshire Police said two men on a moped squirted a "noxious substance" at a man and a woman in Park Leys, Daventry on 26 August.

Police said the man, 23, was left with minor burns to his forehead, and the 19-year-old woman with minor burns to her leg.

A 23-year-old man was arrested in Vernon Close, Daventry, on Tuesday.

The arrest followed reports of a collision involving a moped.

An 18-year-old man and 22-year-old woman were also arrested at the same address on Tuesday.

All three were arrested in "connection with various offences, including theft of a motor vehicle, burglary, possession of an offensive weapon, drugs offences and obstructing the police", said police.

They are in police custody and the investigation continues.
