HARLEM — A man who slashed a stranger multiple times in a random attack has been arrested, police said.

Perez Flores, 36, walked up behind the 26-year-old victim on Sept. 29 around 11:35 p.m. on Third Avenue at East 117th Street and slashed him multiple times with an unknown object, police said.

The victim was cut down his back and his inner and outer left thigh, police said.
