THESE pictures show an acid attacker arriving in court for sentencing after leaving young doctor with ‘life-changing’ injuries.

Milad Rouf is due to be sentenced today for the attack on a junior doctor in May this year.

Rouf arrived at Lewes Crown Court this morning in a white shirt and black trousers ahead of his sentencing hearing at 2pm.

The 25-year-old has already admitted the horrific acid attack on Dr Rym Alaoui on the doorstep of her Brighton flat.

The medical student, from Cardiff, knocked on her door before throwing acid over her at 4.20pm on May 20.

Dr Alaoui, who is in her 20s, was taken from her flat to the Royal Sussex Hospital for treatment and suffered horrific injuries to her face and chest.

In August, Rouf admitted causing grievous bodily harm with intent and using sulphuric acid with intent to burn, maim, disfigure or disable.

Following the plea Sussex Police revealed that he had dressed as a woman to carry out the horrific acid attack.

As he fled the scene, he discarded items of his costume in bins across the city, before buying new clothing from Primark.

Police released CCTV during their investigation into the attack which was revealed to be Rouf's attempt to disguise himself.

Officers carried out extensive enquiries following the incident, including examining hours of CCTV footage to follow Rouf’s movements.

After his arrest, a search of his home address in Cardiff found items matching the clothing he bought in Brighton, as well as a hand-written list of the items he included in his disguise.

Investigating officer Rose Horan said: “This was a premeditated, malicious and harrowing incident, and I’d like to thank the victim for showing such incredible bravery and dignity throughout. She has been inspirational.

“In the end, it was this footage that enabled us to trace Rouf’s movements through the city and build a strong case against him, which has resulted in a guilty plea at court.”
