Man robbed, slashed after refusing to buy drugs in the Bronx

A 26-year-old man was slashed and robbed by a group of assailants after refusing to buy drugs from them in the Bronx, police said.

The victim was attacked by the four men at about 3:30 a.m. last Friday on Edward L. Grant Highway near West 169th Street in Highbridge, cops said.

The crowd punched and kicked the victim once he declined their drug offer, then swiped his bag when the victim fell to the ground, police said.

One of the attackers slashed the victim on the wrist, according to authorities. He was hospitalized, but has since been released.

All four suspects fled on foot. They were still being sought by police as of early Wednesday.
