A man was stabbed under the arm Tuesday afternoon in a Vallejo alley, police said.
The man was stabbed once and taken to a local hospital for his injury.
The incident occurred at about 3 p.m. in the alley on Butte and Carolina streets. The victim told police that a woman approached him in the alley and asked for a cigarette. When he told her he didn't have any, the suspect then stabbed him before fleeing the area.
She was described as a white woman, 30s, "homeless-looking," with dark hair.
