Group Slashes Bronx Man, NYPD Says 

BRONX- The NYPD is looking for a trio of attackers who slashed a man’s face open with a box cutter and then beat and stomped on him in Pelham Bay. 

At around 6:57 pm on May 21, three men approached a 19-year-old in front of 3250 Westchester Avenue. 

The NYPD says a 16-year-old pulled out a box cutter and slashed the man across the forehead and the left side of his neck. 

As the victim lay on the ground helpless, the other two attackers kicked and punched him. The victim was rushed to Einstein Hospital where he was treated for cuts to the forehead and neck as well as abrasions to his right wrist and knee. He is listed in stable condition.
