It was an act of Supreme evil.
Some brute slashed a guy outside the Williamsburg outpost of cult skate shop Supreme on Monday, cops said.
The male suspect approached the 22-year-old man outside the Grand Avenue store between Bedford Avenue and Berry Street around 7:10 pm, and cut him across the face with an unknown object, leaving a laceration, police said.
The alleged slasher, who sported a red-and-white jacket with the word “Britain” emblazoned on its back, then entered a vehicle and fled, according to a report.
Paramedics took the victim to a hospital in Manhattan following the incident, where he received treatment for the gash, authorities said.
Supreme, which opened in Williamsburg in October, is known for hiring guards to watch over the throngs of patrons who wait in a line outside the store for the chance to snag some of its limited-edition apparel and accessories, which are often re-sold at a premium.
But the shop wasn’t open at the time of the slashing, according to hours listed on its website.
Anyone with information regarding the incident is asked to call Crime Stoppers at (800) 577–8477. The public can also submit tips by logging onto the Crime Stoppers website at www.nypdcr
