Police are searching for a 400-pound bearded woman whom they believe stabbed a man in San Diego on Wednesday night.

The stabbing occurred after the 39-year-old man walked up to a group to ask for a cigarette around 7:40 p.m. at Park Boulevard near K Street in East Village, San Diego police Officer Robert Heims told the San Diego Union-Tribune. When he asked for a smoke, the woman demanded he get away from her things and stabbed him on the left side of his neck, according to police.

She then fled southbound on Park Boulevard. The victim was taken to a hospital with a non-life-threatening injury.

Authorities describe her as white woman, weighing about 400 pounds with a beard. She was wearing a white shirt and jeans.
