Police in the Bronx are hunting for a man they say slashed two strangers on the same street just hours apart this past weekend.
Investigators say the man, who was seen on surveillance video, approached a 60-year-old man just before 9 p.m. Sunday on Boston Road in Williamsbridge and slashed him on the left side of his neck.
Shortly after 1 p.m. the next day, police say the same man approached a 65-year-old woman on Boston Road and slashed her on the left side of her face before taking off.
Both victims were taken to Jacobi Hospital.
Police say in both attacks the man did not speak to his victims and used an unknown object to slash them.
He's described as being about 5'9" tall and weighing about 150 pounds.
