CONCOURSE, the Bronx — Police are asking for the public’s help Sunday to identify two men in connection with a slashing that took place inside Franz Sigel Park.

The two men were in the park Thursday night when they allegedly approached a 20-year-old victim and began to argue with him.

One of the men can be seen in the photo obtained by police and released to the public.
