Man punched, slashed, robbed of Cartier watch by stranger he finds in his Manhattan home with his girlfriend
A man was slashed and robbed of his expensive Cartier watch by a stranger he found with his girlfriend at his Lower East Side home, police said Thursday.
The 33-year-old victim returned to his home on Delancey Street near Baruch Drive around 7:10 p.m. June and found the man talking to his girlfriend, police officers said. The stranger's presence sparked an argument that erupted into a fight that spilled out into the hallway.
During the fight, the stranger punched the victim in the face, slashed his neck, and ran off with his keys and Cartier watch.
Paramedics took the victim to Bellevue Hospital, where she was treated and discharged.
The friend told police the attacker stopped by to buy a pit bull cage from her, but she couldn't give them any identifying information other than a nickname, a police source said.
The suspect arrived shortly before the victim returned home, police said.
Police released an elevator surveillance image of the suspect on Thursday and asked for the public's help to identify and track him.
Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at (800) 577-TIPS. All calls are treated confidentially.
