CHAMPAIGN -- Police say a Mahomet man stabbed another man in the head at Pia's Sports Bar Monday night. It's in the 1600-block of West Springfield Avenue.

Police say 30-year old Michael Jordan attacked a 47-year-old who confronted Jordan after he allegedly hit a woman.

It all started inside the bar. Jordan met a woman. They started arguing and Jordan was kicked out.

While outside, police say he attacked the woman. When she walked back in, she had a visible injury. That's when the victim went outside and confronted Jordan.

A fight ensued and police say Jordan pulled out a pocket knife, lunged forward and cut the victim's head. An employee, who works next door, says in 12 years of his career, nothing like this has ever happened.

"Shocked. I couldn't believe it. It's generally a quiet neighborhood. I couldn't believe it," Joe Wells said.

Jordan is charged with aggravated battery. He posted bond and was released.

Police say the victim will need surgery, but is expected to be okay.
