According to Patch.com, Wayman was in Copley Square in Boston reporting on a story with a photographer when a man with a pair of scissors approached the crew’s live truck around 9 p.m. Sunday night.
Patch reported that Wayman tried to shut the door to his van when he was stabbed in the forearm. The alleged perpetrator, 44-year-old Cirilo Aldana-Peraedes, was arrested shortly after the incident. According to the news site:
When the victim asked Aldana-Peraedes to leave him alone, he pulled out scissors in a threatening manner, police said.
Police said Aldana-Peraedes stabbed the passenger-side window of the victim’s van, scratching the glass window, then stabbed the victim when he tried to close the door. The victim suffered a “severe laceration” on his left forearm, police said.
Aldana-Peraedes faces charges of assault and battery by means of a dangerous weapon.
Wayman was eventually able to shut the door to the van before heading to a hospital to be treated for the wound. A spokesperson for WCVB previously said Wayman would be OK.
