The police released a photograph of the driver suspected of slashing a teen who put his bookbag on a BMW in the Bronx. Gabriel Quinones (pictured) remains in the hospital after being slashed on the face and neck; his lung was also punctured. The 16-year-old told the Daily News that he was just "leaning" on Kwame Ferguson's BMW, "I apologized, and he started cursing... I thought he was punching me, and I punched him back. I did not know I had been cut until my friend said, 'Oh, my God - you're bleeding!'" After a witness provided the license number for the BMW, police tracked down Ferguson, who told the police he would turn himself in later. Perhaps not that shockingly, Ferguson never did and the police are now asking for the public's help in finding him. UPDATE: Ferguson was arrested in Brooklyn today.
