A seemingly innocent encounter turned vicious earlier this week when a 20-year-old Cuyahoga Falls woman was reportedly knifed on her front porch in the 300 block of Johnson Avenue.
On Oct. 22 at 3:24 a.m., the woman claimed an unidentified man approached her, asked for a cigarette and stabbed her in the stomach when she refused, according to a Cuyahoga Falls Police report.
Officers rushed to the scene, but were unable to find the attacker.
The woman was taken to Akron City Hospital. The extent of her injuries is unknown.
The Cuyahoga Falls Police Detectives Bureau is actively investigating the incident.
Police Sgt. James Singleton declined to comment Wednesday evening on whether detectives had any leads or suspects.
