She is accused of attacking a 57-year-old Dayton man with a knife around 6:40 a.m. Aug. 4 at the Greater Dayton Regional Transit Authority, 4 S. Main St., after he touched her shoe and asked whether she was OK, according to an affidavit filed in Dayton Municipal Court.

Thornton walked over to where Morris was standing, pulled a lockblade folding knife out of her pocket and began to attack him with it, the document stated.

The victim suffered the loss of a fingertip, numerous cuts to his hands and stab wounds to his face and head before he took the knife from Thornton and ran away, according to the affidavit.
