A New Jersey woman was arrested Sunday for allegedly slashing a bystander in the face with a kitchen knife in a seemingly random attack outside of a Manhattan pizza shop, police said.
Ola Albanni, 52, of Hoboken, NJ, was charged with the harrowing Friday evening attack in Midtown that left a 65-year-woman hospitalized with a gash under her eye, according to the NYPD.

The victim was treated at Mount Sinai Hospital and released.
