NEW YORK (AP) - A 16-year-old Chinese exchange student is recovering after being slashed in the face by a man with a box cutter as she walked to school in Queens.

Police say the unprovoked attack happened on 13th Avenue near 147th Street around 8:20 a.m. Wednesday.

NBC New York (https://bit.ly/1P9ftZn ) says surveillance video shows the suspect wearing a surgical mask and gloves jogging up behind the young girl as she walks on the sidewalk.

Police say the student at the Whitestone Academy school had only been in the country for eight months.

There have been no arrests.
