The victim told police he was in an argument with a friend about what day Thanksgiving was. 

“[The victim] stated he thought Thanksgiving was either the week before or the week after, but certainly not today,” police said in the report. 

The argument escalated when the suspect, only identified as a woman, continued to scream and interrupt while the victim was making a phone call, according to the report. 

After a scuffle between the two, the victim stated the woman grabbed a glass object and threw it at him, causing it to shatter when it missed him and hit a wall. The confrontation moved to another part of the house where the woman threw bleach on the victim, picked up a piece of broken glass, and sliced the victim’s arm. 

The man was transported to Good Samaritan Hospital for treatment of injuries that are believed to be non-life threatening. 

The suspect fled the scene and was not located, police said.
