Suspect in Custody After Two Women Slashed on the Lower East Side

Must Read

A 30-year-old man is in custody this morning — accused of slashing two women in separate incidents on the Lower East Side.

The first attack happened Friday at around 2 p.m. at Rivington and Suffolk streets, according to Channel 2. A 60-year-old woman required 10 stitches to the head after the suspect, Shawn Thomas, allegedly went after her with a blade. The second slashing happened a few minutes later at Ridge and Delancey streets. A 57-year-old woman underwent surgery after suffering facial nerve damage.

Officers from the NYPD Strategic Response Group arrested Thomas yesterday at Avenue D and Third Street. According to the Daily News, the suspect didn’t say anything to his victims before slashing them. These were apparently random, unprovoked attacks.
