Police have announced that a suspect wanted in connection to a slashing attack on a worker in a popular Greenwich Village eatery is now in custody.
Last Wednesday, police said the suspect, accompanied by three others, entered Silver Spurs Diner at 490 LaGuardia Place around 8 p.m. After being asked to leave the restaurant for asking customers for money, the suspect allegedly returned five minutes later and attacked a 25-year-old worker.
In the days that followed, police released photos of the suspect and the three people with him that night. He was described as between the ages of 15 and 18, though police have not released any additional personal information, including his name.
At this time, charges are pending, and the investigation remains ongoing, police have said.
