NEW YORK (1010 WINS) -- A 20-year-old man was taken to the hospital Wednesday night after he was slashed in the face in Times Square, police say.

The incident occurred just before 9 p.m. at 42nd Street and Eighth Avenue.

The victim was involved in a dispute of some sort with two other men, when he punched one in the face, officials say.

That's when one of the men pulled out a knife and slashed him in the face.

The pair then ran off to parts unknown.

Police are searching for the suspects.
