A 16-year-old boy was remanded in custody today by Leeds Youth Court in connection with a bleach attack on a woman who asked a group of youths to be quiet in a cinema.
The 46-year-old woman was attacked in a restaurant in Leeds after an incident at a screening of the new Harry Potter film at the Vue cinema in Kirkstall Road on Sunday, July 26.

The teenager, who cannot be named for legal reasons, appeared at Leeds Youth Court charged with wounding with intent to commit grievous bodily harm.

The youth, dressed in a grey T-shirt and grey tracksuit bottoms, sat in the dock throughout the brief hearing. He spoke only to confirm his name, date of birth and address.

The boy was arrested on Saturday along with another teenager who has now been released on bail pending further inquiries.

The attack happened in a Frankie & Benny's restaurant in Kirkstall Road, Leeds, after the woman asked a group teenagers to stop making a noise during a screening of Harry Potter And The Half-Blood Prince.

She was taken to Leeds General Infirmary suffering from burns.

The court heard that the victim was with her family at the Vue cinema, and the defendant was there with friends.

The victim turned and asked them to be quiet as they watched the new Harry Potter film.

It is alleged the attack happened about 15 minutes later when the family was eating in the restaurant.

For the prosecution, Deborah Smithies, told the court: "The bleach ran into her eyes and hair and onto her clothes. She sustained serious burns as a result of that."

The teenager was remanded in custody to appear next before Leeds Magistrates' Court via video link on August 7. An application for bail was refused.
