The teenager suspected of slashing a busboy at the Silver Spurs diner in Greenwich Village is now in custody.

The police say a tip led to the apprehension of the man suspected of cutting a busboy on the cheek during an argument that erupted Wednesday evening after the teen went into the Laguardia Place diner soliciting donations.

Friday, the NYPD asked for the public’s help in identifying three additional teenagers– a man and two women– who were seen in the suspect’s company on the day of the assault.


Saturday, cops released surveillance camera imagery of two of them, taken at the West 4th Street subway station following the incident.
