The two men had gotten into an argument inside a store that turned physical, police said, spilling out onto the street. At one point, one of the men took out a sharp object and slashed the 54-year-old victim. Police said both individuals are “known to the neighborhood,” though they don’t know the name of the suspect and haven’t arrested him.
The victim was taken to the hospital, where he was treated and released.
The suspect is described as Hispanic and about 6 ft. 2 inches tall and was wearing a long, leather coat.
