The New York City Police Department is searching for a man who walked into a store and slashed the nose of a female manager.
The suspect was captured on video entering Steph’s Designs in the Manhattan neighborhood of Washington Heights and approaching the victim while she was sitting behind the counter on Friday afternoon.
The assailant has a quick verbal exchange with the 22-year-old woman, identified by the store as Desteny, and then reached over the counter and struck her with a sharp object.
The man subsequently ran out of the store and raced across the street to the surprise of a group of men who were playing dominoes on the sidewalk.
None of the merchandise was stolen from the store.
DailyMail.com contacted the store and the alleged victim for comment; it’s unclear if the victim knows the alleged perpetrator.
A separate video posted on the store Instagram page showed the suspect pacing in front of the shop March 19 while he was reportedly ‘looking for somebody.’
