NEW YORK (AP) - New York City police say they’ve arrested a suspect in an apparent random attack on a woman whose face was slashed.

Twenty-four-year-old Amanda Morris was walking to work in Manhattan’s Chelsea neighborhood around 6 a.m. Wednesday when she says a man suddenly slashed the left side of her face and fled. She received stiches at a hospital.

Hours later, authorities arrested 41-year-old Karl Bazemore after a man recognized the suspect from surveillance video he’d seen on television and notified police.

Morris told the New York Post her attacker didn’t appear right to her “because of the way he was walking.”

Bazemore faces felony assault and criminal possession of a weapon charges.

It wasn’t immediately known if he has a lawyer.

Police say Bazemore punched a woman in the face in Manhattan on Dec. 30 and was charged with assault.
