Mugger Slashes Harlem Woman For $25 (Update)

June 17, 2017

NY Daily News reports that cops are hunting for a mugger who slashed an East Harlem woman and stole her bag.

The crook grabbed 64-year-old Daisy Garcia from behind near E. 135th St. and Fifth Ave. around 8 a.m. Wednesday and held a blade to her neck, cops said.

“I do not feel safe when I’m walking anymore,” said Garcia. “I feel like I should not walk alone.”

The brute slashed her across the chin, cut the strap on her bag and bolted away with it across the Madison Ave. Bridge towards the Bronx, cops said. He also cut her left arm.

The bag held her cellphone, $25 cash, ID cards and some food. She needed four stitches for her wounds at Harlem Hospital, she said.

“I hope they catch him,” she fumed. “He is a piece of s–t.”

Meanwhile, cops are searching for muggers in two unrelated incidents.
