Police looking for suspect in slashing outside Karma on 1st Avenue

The NYPD is looking for a suspect in connection with a slashing outside Karma, the hookah bar on First Avenue between Third Street and Fourth Street.

According to the Post, a fight broke out inside the club around 3:30 a.m. on Sunday, spilling out onto the sidewalk.

That’s when the man pulled out a sharp object and slashed his 25-year-old victim, causing a cut to the back of his head, cops said.

Police said the men did not know each other.

The victim needed stitches at Lenox Hill.

Anyone with information that could help in the investigation is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477). You may also submit tips online.

In April 2017, a rapper who performs as Ju was slashed in the face during a fight outside Karma. Ju left in an Uber, but was ejected from the car "for excessive bleeding," the Post reported.

Someone gets slashed on 1st and 3rd and winds up having to be taken to Lenox Hill at 77th and Madison? WTF? I know Beth Israel doesn't have a trauma center, but Bellevue certainly does, and it's a hell of a lot closer.

It’s more likely he was taken to Lenox Hill Health Plex which is on 7 Ave and 12 St

karma has been trouble for years, especially for the downstairs parties. I live very close and have stopped going there. Not worth the higher probability of any sort of altercation in the unprovoked manner.
