A Cicero teenager charged in connection to an attack on a Logan Square woman will be held in custody. The 16-year-old is being charged as a juvenile. She allegedly fled to California, but was brought back to Chicago over the weekend.

Last month, Esperanza Medina was seriously injured when someone threw sulfuric acid on her face during a robbery. Police say surveillance video helped them identify and locate the teenage suspect.

Authorities are looking for two other suspects.
