Woman slashes 10-year-old boy after he answers the door: cops


A 10-year-old Manhattan boy was slashed in the face by an unknown woman who knocked on his apartment door looking for one of his relatives, police said Sunday.

The woman who slashed the boy fled the Upper West Side apartment in the Frederick Douglass Houses on West 104th Street Saturday afternoon.

The young victim was taken to Mt. Sinai Hospital.

Investigators say he answered the door yesterday around 2:30 p.m. and told the suspect the family member she was looking for was not home.

“He says no and she grabs him and cuts his face with a razor,” police tell the Post.

Police say they are interviewing the boy’s mother to find out who the assailant was, and hope to make an arrest soon.
