(Scroll down for video) A man was arrested on a charge of assault after allegedly cutting a woman’s lips because he wanted to scar her face, police in New York said.
The New York Police Department said that they have arrested 41-year-old Kari Bazemore of the Bronx, after being accused of slashing the face of 24-year-old Amanda Morris of Brooklyn.
Bazemore was charged with assault and criminal possession of a weapon.
According to the police investigation, Morris was walking on the corner of Seventh Avenue and West 24th Street around 5:30 a.m. on Wednesday, when she was attacked by Bazemore.
Bazemore used a sharp object to cut her face and lips. “He wanted to scar me, and that is why he went after my face,” Morris said.
Morris walks to Whole Foods, where she is employed, every day. After cutting the victim, Bazemore fled from the scene.
Morris, who felt blood dripping on her face, got into the Malibu Diner, where workers gave her a towel. An employee then took her to Whole Foods, where the supervisor called the police.
She was taken to Bellevue Hospital, where she received seven stitches for deep cuts to her face and lips.
