Police have released sketches of two men who allegedly slashed a Ridgewood woman in the face before throwing acid on her in a vicious attack June 2 at a Brooklyn law office.
The attackers are described by police as black men in their late teens or early 20s. One is 5-foot-9, 150 pounds and was wearing a blue sports jersey and blue pants at the time of the attack. The second is described as 5-foot-6 and 140 pounds.
The victim, a 27-year-old immigrant from Poland, was in her second week as a receptionist at Nassau Consulting, a legal services provider on Driggs Avenue in the Greenpoint section, when the attack occurred. She required 30 stitches to close a wound on her face that ran from ear to lip, her employer said.
The assault baffled the employer, Iwona Kurek, who told the TimesLedger in June that the two men did not say a word to their victim.
"They came to the office, they cut her face and they ran from the office," Kurek said.
