The NYPD has released new surveillance video in hopes of capturing a man they say attacked a woman in a wheelchair last weekend.
On June 5 at about 3:19 a.m. the suspect — described as a black man between 18 and 25 years old — approached the 42-year-old victim in front of 167 E. 125th St. and slashed her face with an unknown object, according to police.
Emergency personnel responded to the scene and took the victim to Lincoln Hospital where she received stitches for the injury, cops said.
Police also previously said that the victim and her attacker did not know each other and the altercation appeared to be random, NBC4 New York reported.
After an image of the suspect was released earlier this week, a new video shows the man outside of 2085 Lexington Ave. — just around the block from the scene.
According to police, the suspect was last seen wearing a black V-neck T-shirt, black baseball shorts with a white stripe down the side, and white basketball sneakers.
Anyone with information in regards to this incident is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477) or for Spanish, 1-888-57-PISTA (74782).
The public can also submit their tips by logging onto the Crime Stoppers website or by texting their tips to 274637 (CRIMES) then enter TIP577.
