New York Daily News - - NEWS - Esha Ray

A 22-year-old man was slashed in the head with a hy­po­der­mic nee­dle dur­ing a fight over a jacket near the Port Au­thor­ity Bus Ter­mi­nal early Sun­day, po­lice said.

The vic­tim got into the dis­pute over his red jacket with a ri­val in front of a pizza shop on W. 43rd St. near Eighth Ave. in Mid­town around 3 a.m., cops said. Dur­ing the fra­cas, the ri­val pulled out a nee­dle and slashed the vic­tim in the left side of his head.

The bleed­ing vic­tim ran to the bus ter­mi­nal for help as his at­tacker fled. Medics took the vic­tim to St. Luke’s Hospi­tal in sta­ble con­di­tion.

Po­lice nabbed Lavon Davis, 19, of the Up­per East Side, a short while later af­ter a brief pursuit and al­legedly found the nee­dle in his jacket pocket. He was charged with as­sault, men­ac­ing and weapons pos­ses­sion.
