The NYPD is looking for a man who slashed a teenager during an argument on a Brooklyn train.
Authorities say that at 3 p.m. on Jan. 10, a 14-year-old boy was onboard a southbound L train. As the train pulled into the Jefferson Street station, an unknown man bumped into the teen as they both got off the train.
The two got into an argument, which ultimately turned physical when the suspect pulled out an orange box cutter and slashed the teen in the arm. The suspect then fled the scene to parts unknown.
The victim suffered a laceration to his left arm. Paramedics took the victim to NYC Health & Hospitals/Bellevue, where he was treated and released.
The NYPD released photos and video of the suspect taken from the incident location:
The suspect is described as a 25-year-old man with short dark hair, a medium build and a light complexion, standing 5 feet, 7 inches tall and weighing 165 pounds. He was last seen wearing a dark-colored hooded jacket, a dark-colored knit cap, light-colored pants and brown boots.
