EAST HARLEM — A man randomly started an argument with a teen then slashed his victim across the face, the NYPD said.
The 19-year-old was walking near East 120th Street and Park Avenue on Jan. 15 around 2 p.m. when an unknown passerby started arguing with him, police said.
The fight escalated and the man pulled out an old-fashioned razor blade and slashed the teen on the left side of his face, causing a roughly four inch cut, police said.
The teen ran to the uptown 2 train and took it to Harlem Hospital where he was treated for his injuries, police said.
The suspect fled on foot in an unknown direction, police said.
The teen told police the suspect was a male, standing 6-foot-1 and weighing approximately 180 pounds.
