The grandson of the late 60 Minutes journalist Andy Rooney has been injured in an attack on a Washington street that left him slashed in the face. WTTG-TV reports Ben Fishel was grabbed from behind while walking home and cut at least four times in the face.
“I was choked from behind,” he said. “He had me in a headlock and he obviously was a large individual because he was pulling up on me. I couldn’t breathe and he had a box cutter and he came across my chin, cut me pretty deep.”
