A Perry Hall woman reported being cut by an unknown man Friday night outside her front door, police said.
At about 8:30 p.m. on Oct. 19, a 44-year-old woman was walking toward her home in the 5000 block of Hilltop Acres Road. While standing on her porch, a man who she did not know put his hand on her shoulder. As the woman pulled away, she realized that the man had a knife in his hand and had left a minor cut on her forearm. The man then ran away, according to a police report.
The woman was not hospitalized, according to Lt. Ron Brooks of the White Marsh police precinct.
Several officers and a K-9 unit searched the area for a suspect. A helicopter was not available due to a tornado warning in the area, Brooks said.
Increased police are patrolling the neighborhood. Investigators are following possible leads, and anyone with information on the incident is urged to call 911, according to Brooks.
