Morris shared her ordeal on Facebook to make others aware of the dangers of walking the streets even when midning your own business.

Today was a difficult day that I never thought I would have to go through. I was simply in the wrong place at the wrong time and put in an unfortunate situation. I was slashed on my face with an unidentifiable object thought to be a razor/box cutter. It was unprovoked and I did not have any association with this man prior to the incident. We have never seen each other before.
