From the Pasadena Star- News:

PASADENA — A man was allegedly stabbed in the hand by a panhandler on Wednesday night near the corner of Colorado Boulevard and Pasadena Avenue in Old Pasadena.

At about 8 p.m. the suspect approached the victim, asking for some money, Pasadena Police Lt. Randell Taylor said. When the victim said he didn’t have any, the panhandler pulled out a knife and tried to stab him, Taylor said.

The victim put his hands up to protect himself and was stabbed in the hand, Taylor said. He was taken to a hospital and his wound was treated.

The suspect had a long beard, a military jacket and a military hat, and appeared to be in his 20s or 30s, Taylor said.
