NYPD: Suspect in Manhattan boxcutter slashing has been arrested
Police say they arrested a suspect in connection to the Manhattan boxcutter slashing assault Monday.

Evans is accused of slashing a 59-year-old woman with a boxcutter on the corner of Seventh Avenue and West 42nd Street. He cut her hand with the knife, seemingly unprovoked, authorities say.
