Officer Matthew Droge said Eric Robinson, 20, Manhattan, reported that he was walking in the south alley of the 900 block of Fremont Street a little before 6:45 a.m. when another man approached him. Droge said words were exchanged and a physical altercation ensued.

During the fight, Robinson reported that he was cut several times on his upper body with an unknown sharp instrument. Riley County EMS transported him to Mercy Regional Health Center for non-major injuries.

Droge said police have a description of the attacker and the case is under investigation.
