We arrested a man following an incident in St Helens last night (Thursday 2 June).
Just before 10.20pm, it was reported a man entered a flat on Lower Hall Street and sprayed three women inside with an unknown liquid using a water pistol, following a verbal altercation outside.
The women were checked over by North West Ambulance Service and did not require treatment. Tests to establish the substance have proved inconclusive at this stage.
A 48-year-old man from St Helens was arrested on suspicion of burglary and assault. He has been conditionally bailed while enquiries to establish the full circumstances continue.
Officers have conducted house to house enquiries and are exploring CCTV opportunities in the area.
Anyone who witnessed the incident or has any information is asked to contact @MerPolCC on Twitter or ‘Merseyside Police Contact Centre’ on Facebook or call 101 with reference 22000381666. You can also call Crimestoppers, anonymously on 0800 555 111, or report via their online form at https://crimestoppers-uk.org/give-information/forms/pre-form
