A man was stabbed with a pedicure razor after confronting a woman on a CTA bus. Natasha Butler, 41, was allegedly shouting at a female passenger on the No. 77 Belmont bus. The woman ran from the bus, and when a man tried to confront Butler, the two started arguing.

DNAinfo writes:

"It was really annoying, so I told her to either shut up or get off the bus," said the victim. "So she starts threatening me. There was a lot of 'your mamas' involved ... and she's talking to me like she wants me to meet her in the parking lot after school."

The bus driver stopped the bus to break up the fight. Then the victim, a 35-year-old suburban man, says he made a comment, and she "came charging." Butler fled from the Belmont bus at Southport Avenue, and the victim said he didn't know at first that he had been stabbed because the wounds were small. The man required four stitches and a tetanus shot. Police arrested Butler two hours later.
