Cops have released a startling video of a savage, slashing attack March 22 inside a Bronx bodega that left a 26-year-old woman with 40 stitches in her face. “My face will probably never heal up,” the victim told the Post.
The victim says it started the day before the attack when one of the women yelled at her about her clothes.
The next day, the three women accosted her inside the bodega at about 12:45 p.m., punching and kicking her.
The Post‘s Ikimulisa Livingston and Jamie Schram pick up the story:
After they left the store, they menacingly waited outside for the woman, said bodega worker Abraham Alfakih.
“They were waiting for her outside for a few minutes,” he told the Post.
“We had her in the back, we told her to wait here for the cops.”
But the assailants marched back inside with a razor and began slicing the victim’s face, the victim said.
One of the suspects “grabbed me by my ponytail and had her hands around my head.”
Another “held my arms from the back” as she was repeatedly slashed.
Now, police are looking for Britney Sanders, 24, for questioning. She lives in the Mitchel Houses, about a block from the Mott Haven bodega on Willis Avenue.
