A man was slashed at West 73rd street and Amsterdam Avenue around 3:30 a.m. on Thursday, according to the NYPD.
There was a dispute between the victim and two other men, an NYPD spokesman told us. “We’re not sure if they knew each other or the nature of the dispute,” the spokesman said. The victim was “slashed several times on the upper torso and neck.”
He was taken to St. Luke’s Hospital in stable condition.
The perpetrator fled in an unknown direction. He is described as a light-skinned Hispanic man in a hooded sweatshirt and jeans. Police are also searching for the third man, who may have fled with the perpetrator. Police did not have the exact location of the slashing.
