I walked rather quickly away and he didn't! Somebody had found a cop quite close around the corner and they picked him up quite literally from the sidewalk while I waited for the ambulance. I recovered fine!

When this started by the way I thought he was reaching to get my wallet and did not see the knife when I initially trapped his arm, so it is sort of my mistake that I got sliced by my choice of action.
EDIT: Left the important part out above. The guy got tripped when I kicked his legs trying to get out of there and when he fell he hit his head pretty bad, that is why he had to literally be picked up! There were no super cool ninja moves involved!
