The victim, Michael Chiyo Butler, 24, of Dudley, was taken by ambulance to Wayne Memorial Hospital, where he received 26 stitches and was released, officials said.
Butler said the woman approached him at about 11:15 a.m. in the 900 block of Fairview Circle and asked why he would not talk to her, the report said. Butler tried to walk away, but the woman grabbed him, cut him and then fled, the report said.
