Kissing Leads to Slashing at Pianos Bar on Ludlow Street
Smooch for a slash.
A patron of Pianos was slashed across the face early Sunday morning after kissing a girl at the bar, police confirmed.
Cops say the victim, a man from France, was reportedly smooching a girl he just met, when some other dude smashed him in the face with a glass/bottle. The impact resulted in a laceration to his right cheek.
The suspect is described in scanner reports as an African American male with a beard, wearing a blue shirt. He reportedly fled northbound on Ludlow Street after the altercation.
It’s unclear whether the assailant knew the victim or the girl he kissed.
Yet another instance of violence in an increasingly unsafe Hell Square. Neighbors continue to maintain that Pianos is one of the more troublesome nightspots in the vicinity with its lengthy queues, high volume, and altercations such as these.
Pianos first arrived on the scene in 2002 and quickly became a go-to for upstart bands. That was when the local music scene was still hovering on the Lower East Side. Before decamping to Brooklyn. Problems with the community began to really surface roughly three years in.
