A Buffalo, New York woman was slashed in the eye by a group of attackers on New Year's Eve outside a club in the city's Allentown neighborhood.
WIVB reports: "Buffalo Police are investigating an early-morning stabbing outside a club in the Allentown area. A woman was taken to the hospital after she was slashed in the right eye. Police responded to the incident on Main and Allen Streets, outside Club Roxy's just after 2 a.m. Friday. No word on the victim's condition or if an arrest has been made."
There is, word, however, of the victims condition on Facebook, and based on the report there should be hate crime charges here:
