A woman jogging in Queens on Sunday morning was slashed on the left thigh by a suspect who remains at large.
The victim, 19, told police she was jogging in the area of 25th Avenue between 79th and 80th streets in Jackson Heights when a man in a gray hooded jacket slashed her left thigh, ABC reported.
“That’s very shocking, very shocking,” resident Pamela Charry said in a related CBS article. “People are home by 6 p.m., kids play outside, so it’s very safe. So to hear something like that is a little scary.”
The suspect could have been jogging as well, police said to the New York Daily News. After slicing the inch-long gash into the victim’s thigh, he ran off.
The victim was taken to Elmhurst General Hospital and is in stable condition, according to CBS.
Police have not made any arrests, and the investigation is ongoing, ABC added.
