A female stranger slashed a man on the face on New Year’s Day in Lower Manhattan after snarling, “Why are you talking to my girl?,” cops said.
The 38-year-old man was walking on Greenwich Street near Rector Street around 1:40 a.m. when the suspect confronted him with the question, authorities said.
She then slashed him in the face above the left eye with a “cutting instrument,” cops said.
It’s unclear whether another female was present at the time.

She was still being sought Tuesday.
