The attack happened at around 7:45 a.m. on Feb. 3, when the man approached the 31-year-old female victim near Boerum Street and White Street in Bushwick.

The assailant then slashed the woman’s face, according to police.

The victim was transported to a nearby hospital by EMS where she was treated for the large laceration.
