Police are still looking for a cyclist who they said slashed another man in Chelsea more than a month ago.
According to cops, on Tues., Sept. 29, around 4:45 p.m., a 21-year-old man got into a verbal dispute with a stranger at 13th St. and Seventh Ave.
Things got physical and the stranger whipped out a “sharp instrument” and slashed the victim on the left arm, police said. The attacker then fled on a bicycle in an unknown direction.
E.M.S. medics responded and transported the victim to Lenox Hill Hospital in serious but stable condition.
The suspect is 20 to 30 years old, according to police.
Police provided surveillance photos taken from near the incident location, after the incident. Police did not say if the slasher was riding his bike or had it with him when he encountered the victim and the dispute occurred.
Police ask that anyone with information call the N.Y.P.D.’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477) or for Spanish, 1-888-57-PISTA (74782). Tips can also be submitted on the Crime Stoppers Web site at WWW.NYPDCRIMESTOPPERS.COM or on Twitter at @NYPDTips.
