A man armed with a knife slashed and robbed a Pasadena man who was getting into his car Tuesday behind a fast-food restaurant, county police said yesterday.

The man, armed with a knife, demanded money and, while Mr. Russell was getting his wallet, cut him on the left arm several times, police said.

Mr. Russell gave him an undisclosed amount of cash, and the man ran away, police said.
