Police said that the jogger was slashed near 79th Street and 25th Avenue in Jackson Heights at about 11:15 a.m. by a male who was jogging alongside her. Cops said that the man brushed up against her and slashed her left leg with an unknown object before fleeing.

The victim was taken to Elmhurst Hospital Center and is in stable condition, cops said.

The suspect is believed to be about 20 years old, cops said. He was wearing black shorts and a gray hoodie at the time of the slashing, police said.

No arrests have been made.
