Three Canadian women have been arrested for allegedly cutting another woman's face with a bottle during a party at an upscale Times Square hotel, forcing her to get three dozen stitches.

The Port Authority Police Department says the victim required 36 stitches after being attacked with a bottle and drinking glasses inside the W Hotel early Tuesday.

The victim followed the suspects to the Lincoln Tunnel and told a Port Authority officer that they had attacked her, authorities said.

Monique Boakye-Yiadom, 35, Aleesha Williams, 26, and Amy Walker, 30, were arrested on charges of assault, gang assault and weapon possession. All are from Ontario, Canada.

It wasn't known if they had attorneys.

The hotel's general manager did not immediately return a call seeking comment.
