BROOKLYN - A conversation turned violent inside a Williamsburg bodega, leaving one man with slash wounds across his face. 

The 53-year-old victim, whose name is Carlos, says that he was standing inside the Division Avenue store at around 10 a.m. Tuesday when another man came in and started asking him questions. 

According to investigators, the suspect then slashed Carlos in the face and ran off, but not before he was caught on surveillance video inside the bodega. 

Carlos was taken to the hospital where he was treated and released with stitches. He says he doesn't recognize the suspect, and is confused and scared by the encounter.
