This random attack will make you sick to your stomach. People can be really evil.
A brutal and cowardly attack in East Harlem Sunday morning left a wheelchair-bound woman with a cut to the face that took 50 stitches to close in the latest New York face-slashing incident.
The 42-year-old woman, who is not being named by police, was outside a strip mall in on E. 125 St. near Third Ave. at 3:19am when the assault occurred.
The attacker – who was aged between 18 and 25 – ran by, veering quickly to the side to cut her before slowing down sauntering off, NBC reported.
The video, which has been edited to remove everything but the attacker, shows how he casually leaned to the side while running to cut the woman in what seems like a premeditated attack.
The assault was random, police said: neither victim nor slasher knew each other and there was no altercation beforehand.
Police don’t know what weapon was used in the attack.
The woman, who had got out of a bus just before she was slashed, was taken to Lincoln Hospital for treatment, police said.
