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.
