Cops have arrested a suspect in Wednesday’s slashing of a 2-year-old boy in a stroller, police said Friday.
Anthony Gonzalez, 35, is facing charges of felony assault and criminal possession of a weapon, cops said. Police did not give any details of the circumstances of his arrest.
The 35-year-old allegedly slashed the youngster in the face while a nanny was pushing him near West 110th Street and Morningside Drive around 9:30 a.m. Wednesday, cops said.
“Thanks to the hard work & dedication of @NYPDDetectives, who’re relentless in their investigations, the suspect wanted for this horrific crime against a defenseless child has been charged with felony assault,” Police Commissioner Dermot Shea said in a tweet announcing the arrest.
The injured child was hospitalized after the attack and got six stitches above his right eye, sources said.
Cops first released images of the suspected slasher Thursday.
