Two more people were slashed in less than 12 hours over the weekend in unrelated incidents in the Bronx, police said.

In the first incident, a 26-year-old woman was slashed in the face when two men jumped out of a car on Holland Avenue in the Williamsbridge area, police said. The woman told investigators she was standing on the street about 5:20 p.m. on Saturday when they ambushed her.

One of the men had a knife, slashing her right ear and stabbing her in the stomach. They then jumped back into the car and sped off, police said. 

The woman was taken to a hospital. 

In the second incident, a man was attacked on East 173rd Street, near Southern Boulevard,  about 3:45 a.m. Sunday. The suspect, wearing all black, came up to him and slashed him on the left side of his face, police said.

The suspect then ran away, police said.
