FLUSHING — Police were looking for a man who allegedly assaulted a teenager with a box cutter in Flushing last week.

At about 10 p.m. Nov. 2, the suspect had a verbal dispute with a 16-year-old boy on the side of 40-38 Union St. and slashed him on the neck with a box cutter then fled on foot, according to the police.

EMS removed the victim to New York Hospital Queens, where he was treated for the slash wound to his neck and released, police said.

The suspect was described by police as a 25-year-old Hispanic man with a light complexion. He was wearing a two-tone gray-hooded sweatshirt, dark pants, a blue baseball cap and dark-colored sneakers.

No arrests have been made and the investigation was ongoing, according to a police spokesman.
