EAST HARLEM, Manhattan – A 19-year-old man was walking through the Jefferson Houses when he was allegedly slashed Sunday night.
Police sources said the teenager was attacked by two men for “no reason” around 10:30 p.m. at the notorious Manhattan public housing complex.
He was taken to St. Luke’s Hospital for treatment.
Violence has riddled these East Harlem projects in recent weeks. On April 1st, a man was shot in the leg just a few days after another individual was pierced by a bullet. On March 25th, 16-year-old Juwan Taverez was shot to the head and died two days later.
