PROSPECT-LEFFERTS GARDENS — A man slashed his female companion in the neck with a machete after the pair’s pot-smoking session went sour.
The 45-year-old woman and the man were smoking pot at an apartment at 580 Flatbush Ave. in Prospect-Lefferts Gardens in the early morning hours of July 4, police said. When the man told her to leave around 6:30 a.m., the pair got into an argument.
A short time later, the man took out the machete and slashed the woman multiple times in the neck, police said.
The woman suffered minor injuries and fled the apartment.
It’s unclear if the apartment belonged to the man, officials said. He was still at large as of Wednesday, police said.
