A man was stabbed by a 400-pound, bearded woman soon after asking a group of people for a cigarette in San Diego’s East Village on Wednesday night, police said.
The 39-year-old man walked up to the group at about 7:40 p.m., San Diego Police Officer Robert Heims said. After the man asked for the cigarette, a woman walked up to him, told him to get away from her things and stabbed him in the neck, police said.
The man, whose injury was not life-threatending, was taken to a hospital.
The assailant ran away heading south on Park. She was described as white and about 400 pounds with a beard, police said. She was wearing a white shirt and jeans.
