Attacker makes slurs before slashing man in face in Pasadena

PASADENA — Police are seeking a man who antagonized a man with racial and gang slurs before slashing him in the face late Saturday, officials said.
The attack took place about 11:53 a.m. along Montana Street near Raymond Avenue, Pasadena police Lt. Jason Clawson said.
A 28-year-old North Hollywood man was accompanied by his girlfriend and retrieving items from a parked car when he was approached by another man described only as a black, between 5 feet 7 inches and 5 feet 9 inches tall and weighing about 150 pounds, the lieutenant said.
The attacker tried to antagonize the victim, shouting “gang slurs” and “racial slurs,” at the victim, who was white, Clawson said.
“He pulled out some type of weapon and swung, and cut the victim above his eye,” he said.
The injured man declined to be taken to a hospital by paramedics. It was not immediately clear if the case was to be investigated as a hate crime.
