"She was yelling all sorts of things like, 'You stole my identity' and, 'You're a prostitute,'" Yi told the publication. "Santa Monica has a homeless problem, and I've dealt with this type of thing before so I told her, 'Ma'am, you can't be here. You need to leave.'"

According to Yi, the woman did not follow her requests and proceeded to lunge at her.

"She stabbed me in the left bicep," Yi alleged. "And then she hit me on the right hand with the baton. My Apple Watch shattered."

"It was really awful," she added. "It was dark when this happened...Physically, I'm on the mend. Emotionally, it's harder, but I should be OK."

Fans first met Yi on "Survivor: Fiji" in 2006. She quickly became a fan favorite before being voted out and making the jury. Fellow contestant Earl Cole would ultimately be named the sole survivor of the season.
