An unidentified man cut a pedestrian along the 1000 block of Fairview Avenue about 1 a.m. Friday.
The victim said he left a convenience store at 3508 Log Cabin Drive and was approached by a man wearing khaki pants and a blue shirt, according to the incident report.
The man became irritated when the victim did not have a cigarette to give him, and the man proceeded to shove the victim, the report said. When the victim took a swing in response, he was cut by a knife on his right forearm.
Macon police found a gash an eighth of an inch deep on the victims arm and took him to Coliseum Northside Hospital.
