35-year-old man slashed in face inside NYC bank: cops

A 35-year-old man was slashed in the face inside a Manhattan bank late Wednesday, cops said. 

The victim was attacked inside the Capital One Bank on Broadway near East 14th Street – steps from the Union Square subway station, just after 10 p.m., authorities said.

A man with a dark complexion, wearing a yellow jacket, black jeans and carrying a suitcase fled on foot in an unknown direction, police said. 

The victim was taken to Bellevue Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. 

The entrance of the bank, as well as the entry to the 14th Street Union Square station right next to it, were blocked off by police tape.

The motive for the assault was unknown on Thursday. 

Cops could not confirm exactly where the slashing occurred inside the bank, which was closed at the time of the attack.

The steps of the 14th Street-Union Square station were blocked off with "caution" tape.
