Lott St. lunacy

A man was knocked to the ground and had his hand sliced open with a knife during a bizarre blow-up on Lott Street, police said.

Cops were told that the victim was arguing with 44-year-old Cecil Griffith on Lott Street between Tilden Avenue and Albemarle Road at 5 pm on May 21 when Griffith allegedly bowled the man over.

He then pulled a knife and cut the man’s hand before walking off, police alleged.

Griffith was taken into custody a few hours later, charged with assault in the third degree, menacing and criminal possession of a weapon.

The motive was unclear as this paper went to press.
