A suspect was arrested Sunday in connection with the slashing of a 53-year-old woman 10 days ago in Brooklyn, police said.
Police in Sayreville, New Jersey, captured Gregory Alfred, 25, who a day earlier was identified by police as the man seen in a surveillance video fleeing the scene of the March 10 attack. The man in the video has an American flag bandanna wrapped around his face.
The victim, a 53-year-old woman, was walking on Beverly Beverley and Rugby roads in Prospect Park South at about 9:30 a.m. when the man came up from behind and slashed her across her jawline, said NYPD Chief of Detectives Robert Boyce
Boyce said the attack appears to have been random, and the man and victim didn't exchange words before the attack. The slasher ran off, dropping the black-handled knife and the bandanna along the way.
