A French tourist was randomly slashed in the neck while walking in Harlem with his girlfriend on Friday, police said.
Footage shows the 27-year-old man’s blood spilling on the pavement, as people press a cloth to his neck and his distraught girlfriend holds him while talking to police.
The tourist and his girlfriend had just walked out of the IHOP on Adam Clayton Powell Jr. Boulevard at West 135th Street when a stranger slashed the man across the face and neck with a knife, cops said.
EMS rushed the man to Harlem Hospital, where he was listed in critical but stable condition.
Police canvassed the neighborhood for a suspect dressed in black and wearing Air Jordan sneakers but had yet to find him as of Friday evening.
