A kind-hearted middle-aged woman was slashed on her arm while she was making a sandwich for a hungry man, police in Indiana said.

Indianapolis Police said that the 63-year-old woman was making the sandwich for the man, who came to her apartment in the 300 block of Welcome Way Boulevard around 1:00 a.m. on Friday, asking for food.

While she was making the sandwich, the man entered her home without permission and demanded money. When she told him that she had no money, he pulled out a razor blade and cut her left arm several times.

The man stole $80 from her purse, and said that he would kill her if she called the police. Before leaving, he cut her arm again.

Police described the suspect as a white 40 year old. The woman told investigators that she gave the man sandwiches in the past and he never turned violent.
