Man blinded after alleged chlorine attack by neighbour

A MAN has been partially blinded after his neighbour allegedly poured liquid chlorine over his fence in Sydney's east.

Police said a 45-year-old man was on a trampoline with his child in the backyard of their home in Hastings Parade, North Bondi about 2:45pm yesterday just before the incident happened.

Officers said after the man's child went inside, his 31-year-old neighbour allegedly poured an amount of liquid chlorine over his fence which hit the 45-year-old man in the face.

The older man was taken to Sydney Eye Hospital by ambulance where he was told he had permanent damage to his eyesight as a result of the incident.

A police statement said officers believe the act was deliberate.
