Police are asking for help in finding a man who slashed a woman on the face in an incident a few weeks ago on the Lower East Side. It happened at around 1 in the afternoon on Jan. 31 in an apartment building near the intersection of Jefferson and Madison streets. A masked suspect came up to the 30-year-old victim and – unprovoked – sliced her on the right side of the face with an unknown object. When she screamed, he took off and has not been located. The woman was treated for minor injuries at Beth Israel Hospital. If you have any information about this crime, call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS.
