Cops Seek 10 Suspects in South Street Slashing

Posted on: July 24th, 2018 at 5:00 am by

Police are in pursuit of ten men suspected in the slashing of a 23-year-old man in the shadow of the Manhattan Bridge Sunday evening.

Apparently it all started when the victim reportedly engaged in a verbal dispute with two women. The women then allegedly called their boyfriends to jump the 23-year-old, according to the subsequent police report filed. However, the victim was with his 20-year-old pal when a group of ten guys assaulted them near South Street and Rutgers Slip. (An initial tip suggested that the dispute originated from Rutgers Houses.)

One of the victims was slashed across the face and had his cell phone stolen; the other was struck in the head with an unknown object. All ten perps – described as African American males – later fled the scene. No arrests have been made as yet.

Both victims staggered westward to Market Slip before calling 911.
