Teen taken into custody in connection to slashing of Manhattan waiter

Police have arrested a teen in connection with a slashing attack of a Bronx man working as a waiter in Manhattan. 



They say Bronx resident Bobby Barbot was working as a waiter at the Silver Spurs Diner in Greenwich Village and asked the suspect to leave after he was seen panhandling customers. 



Police say the suspect returned a short time later and slashed Barbot on the cheek. 



Barbot required 120 stiches, both inside and outside of his mouth. 



Police did not say what the teen was charged with.
