NYPD: Man asks woman for directions, then slashes her across the face NEW YORK (1010 WINS) - Police say a man thanked a woman for giving him directions by slashing her across the face. The suspect came up to the 28-year-old victim on Lafayette Avenue in the Throggs Neck section of the Bronx Thursday afternoon, according to the NYPD. He asked her for directions and she obliged, pointing him to the place he wanted to go. That's when police say he suddenly pulled out a cutting device and slashed her on the left side of her face. The woman was taken to an area hospital, where she had to have multiple stitches. Police said they're looking for a man in his 30s. They released surveillance video of him Saturday.

President Trump was so bothered by his chief of staff's coughing during an interview in the Oval Office with ABC News that he asked his top aide to leave the room.

Trump was in the middle of answering a question from ABC's George Stephanopoulos about his financial records when he abruptly asked to do another take.

"And let's do that over, he's coughing in the middle of my answer," Trump told Stephanopoulos, referring to his chief of staff Mick Mulvaney.

"I don't like that, you know, I don't like that," Trump continued, referring to Mulvaney's coughing.

"Your chief of staff," Stephanopoulos clarified.

"If you're going to cough, please leave the room. You just can't, you just can't cough. Boy oh boy," Trump said.

The Hill has reached out to the White House for comment.

Trump proceeded to answer Stephanopolous's question by saying he wanted people to see his "financial statement," calling it phenomenal."

Trump added the decision is "not up to me, it's up to lawyers."
