Man's neck slashed at Center City hotel; suspect charged

CENTER CITY (WPVI) -- Philadelphia police have charged a man accused of slashing another man's neck inside a Center City hotel.

Police say it stems from an argument around 1 a.m. Saturday at a party on the 15th floor of the Embassy Suites on the Ben Franklin Parkway.

Two men got into a dispute while inside a room at the hotel. One of the men allegedly pulled out a razor and slashed a 24-year-old man in the neck.

The victim told police he was in a verbal argument with a male known to him as Tyress Salmon about not getting ready fast enough to go out to a club.

Both men began fighting when Salmon allegedly cut the victim across the neck with a razor.

The victim is in stable condition at Hahnemann University Hospital.

Several people at the party took off before officers arrived.

Salmon, who is from the Bronx, New York, has been charged with attempted criminal homicide, aggravated assault, simple assault and related offenses.
