Cops are looking for a man who allegedly slashed his coworker in the face in front of the Liquiteria juice shop where they worked at 26 East 17th Street.

Police say Leonard Jackson and the victim had gotten into an argument over a lock on a door when things turned physical and Jackson allegedly attacked him. Police say the victim had to get 40 stitches on his face.

Jackson’s last known address is on Wortman Avenue in Brooklyn and he has been arrested six times in Brooklyn. However, those cases are sealed.

Jackson is described as black, about 200 lbs. with black, short hair and brown eyes. Anyone with information about his whereabouts is asked to call detectives at the 13th Precinct at (212) 477-7444.

A phone number for Liquiteria’s Union Square West location wasn’t working on Tuesday.
