Police are looking for a woman that reportedly slashed a man over a traffic dispute in the east Bronx’s 43rd Precinct last month.

The NYPD said that the woman engaged in a “verbal dispute regarding traffic” that turned violent with a 47-year old man who jumped out of his car in front of 2260 Ellis Ave. at 6:55 p.m on Monday, April 27.

That woman allegedly  got of her vehicle and the argument quickly ensued into a physical altercation which left the man slashed in his left leg, arm, and hand, from an “unknown cutting instrument” used by the woman, according to police sources.

She fled westbound on Ellis Avenue and the man was brought to Jacobi Hospital in stable condition.


Anyone with information in regard to the identity of the males is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477) or for Spanish, 1-888-57-PISTA (74782). The public can also submit their tips by logging onto the CrimeStoppers website a, on Twitter @NYPDTips.
