Sagona told the New York Daily News the man walked past her several times and ‘checked her out’ as he told someone over the phone ‘I’m going to marry her’.

The unnamed man then grabbed Sagona and held a knife to her face after she rejected his advances, she said.

‘He said I was pretty, then asked me if I was scared,’ she said.

‘I said, ‘No,’ and then he grabbed me by the neck, maybe the shoulder,’ she recalled. ‘I felt like I was going to be raped.’

Sagona said he then immediately pulled out the knife and slashed her across the face, leaving her with a severe cut down her cheek.

‘When he took out the blade, he said he would kill me,’ she said of the savage attack.

The man then ran off with her phone and backpack, she said. He took her keys, $4, a MetroCard and a wallet worth $600.

Sagona said the incident left her needing 44 stitches running from the top of her cheek down to her jawbone.

After the horrifying incident an Uber pulled up at the curb and the passenger soon called 911.

Sagona was rushed to hospital, and immediately stitched up by doctors.

They told her she will now be left with a lifelong scar after the attack.

She said police told her the attack was captured on video, although there has not yet been an arrest.

She admitted the weekend incident had chipped away at her sense of safety and willingness to walk down certain streets in the city.

Anyone with information about the suspect is urged to call the NYPD tip line at 800-577-TIPS.
