Three slashed near Stonewall Inn following day of protests

Three people were slashed in Greenwich Village early Monday, according to police — hours after protests raged on the 51st anniversary of the Stonewall riots.

Two women, 24 and 21, and a 25-year-old man, were each slashed around 5 a.m. at Waverly Place and Christopher Street, close to the historic Stonewall Inn, cops said.

They were taken to NYC Health + Hospitals/Bellevue with non-life-threatening injuries.

A man and woman, both 21, were taken into custody but hadn’t been charged as of Monday morning.

It wasn’t immediately clear what led to the violence.

The city’s annual pride parade was held virtually because of the coronavirus — but hundreds of people still packed sections of Manhattan for a pro-LGBTQ, anti-police-brutality march.

Some got into confrontations with officers after marching to Washington Square Park from Foley Square.
