David Henry Hwang Doing Well After Getting Slashed In The Neck

Thursday, December 03, 2015

Just one of those WTF moments.

A Tony award-winning playwright was slashed in the neck in an apparently random attack near his Brooklyn home, police said Wednesday.

David Henry Hwang, who brought home the trophy for his 1988 play “M. Butterfly,” was walking on S. Oxford Ave. near Lafayette Ave. in Fort Greene when an unknown attacker slashed his neck from behind around 8:50 p.m. on Sunday, police said.

The 57-year-old writer told police he felt pain and then noticed he was bleeding before walking to a hospital. He was treated and released.

“Thanks to the excellent work of the doctors at Brooklyn Hospital and Mount Sinai, I'm now home and expected to make a full recovery,” Hwanh told the Daily News.

Glad to hear he is doing well and I hope they find the perp that did this.

Here's to a speedy recovery (physically and mentally).
