New images show the man wanted in the attack.

LONGWOOD, The Bronx (WABC) -- Police released new photos of the man wanted for slashing a person with a machete in a Bronx laundromat.

It happened on Southern Boulevard and East 149th Street in the Longwood section Monday afternoon.

Police say the suspect ran into the business and took a swing at the victim but missed. He then swung a second time, slashing him in the left arm.

The man then ran back outside and hopped into a dark-colored BMW that fled the scene.

The victim was taken to Lincoln Hospital with a non-life-threatening injury.

The FDNY says three other people were transported to the hospital with unknown injuries.

It is believed the suspect and victim know each other, and sources tell Eyewitness News this is an ongoing dispute over money.

So far, there are no arrests.
