New York City has seen an unsettling trend of face slashings in recent months. In January, a man's face was slashed after an argument in a Harlem subway station. On April 8, a Hasidic man was slashed in the face at Greenwich Village subway station.
Days before those attacks, a woman allegedly faked her own face slashing, according to police, and lied about being attacked.
On Thursday, investigators announced that two men were indicted after scheming to slash the face of a 14-year-old girl in Queens and subsequently slashing another girl's face from her ear to her throat in a case of mistaken identity.
