Police make arrest in slashing at Hicksville deli

Posted: Updated:

Police have made an arrest in connection to a slashing incident at a Hicksville deli earlier this month.

They say 29-year-old Cristofer Angel entered the Broadway deli last month and asked three men for money.

An argument followed and the men went outside.

That's when police say Angel slashed two of them in the face and then took off.

Angel, who police say is homeless, is now facing assault and weapons charges.
