Man slashed in face in Elyria

ELYRIA — A man was slashed in the face around 9 p.m. Sunday night outside his home in 300 block of 11th Street near the intersection of West Avenue.

The man’s girlfriend identified him as Shaun Justice, 27, and said the wound was not life threatening. Police said they had a suspect in custody but didn’t identify him. They said he will be charged over the attack.

Neighbors said the suspect had been on the block a few hours earlier threatening to stab children over a stolen bicycle. They said the man returned and began pounding on Justice’s car as Justice pulled out of his driveway. They said that when Justice got out of his car and argued with the man, he was cut and the man ran off.
