Authorities in New York City say a man slashed a woman's throat in Queens last week after she refused to have a conversation with him. 

According to Gothamist, the NYPD says the incident took place at inside the lobby of a Jamaica apartment building early last Wednesday. The man approached the 26-year-old victim, and when she brushed him off, he allegedly grabbed her, then slashed her with a blade of some sort. 

Gothamist adds that woman was transported to a local hospital where she's said to be in critical, yet stable condition.

The suspect is still at large. Police ask anyone with information about the crime to contact Crime Stoppers via their website, calling their hotline at 800-577-TIPS, or texting TIP577 to 274637(CRIMES).
