THE BRONX - Police are looking for a man who they say attacked two people over the age of 60 in Baychester within two days.

According to investigators, a 60-year-old man was slashed in the neck with an unknown object Sunday night on Boston Road. They say a 65-year-old woman was again slashed in the face with an unknown object Monday afternoon, just blocks away from the first incident.

Cops say that in both cases, nothing was stolen and the suspect didn't say a word before the assaults. The man was caught on camera and is described as black, about 5 feet 9 inches tall and 160 pounds.

Both victims are expected to be OK.

Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS.
