    Police are asking for the public's help to identify two individuals wanted in connection with two slashings during the past week in New York City.

    Investigators on Saturday released photos of both individuals.

    One assault occurred at about 8 p.m. Wednesday at the Silver Spurs Diner in Greenwich Village.

    A 25-year-old waiter was slashed across the left cheek by a young man who had been asked to leave the diner because he was asking patrons for donations, investigators said.

    Investigators released a photo of the suspect, who might be a teenager, taken by a surveillance camera as he fled into the West 4th Street subway station after the assault.

    The other slashing occurred at about 2 a.m. on Valentine's Day in the Bronx.

    A surveillance video shows the suspect cut a 24-year-old man in the head when they argued in line at a food truck in the vicinity of Jerome Avenue and East 174th Street. The victim was treated at a Bronx hospital and released.
