A Pittsburgh man who was stabbed in the head with a screwdriver Wednesday refused to be transported to the hospital until after the Penguins' playoff game concluded.

According to a police report obtained by Bryan Armen Graham of the Guardian, the 43-year-old owner of City of Steel Auto Detail in Pittsburgh was struck by a 25-year-old male with a screwdriver during a verbal altercation. The victim told police he did not want medical assistance at the scene and would drive himself to the hospital after the Penguins' matchup with the Columbus Blue Jackets ended.

Police said the man was bleeding from his scalp at the time of their arrival. He eventually sought treatment at UPMC Mercy after the Penguins' 3-1 win.

Neither of the men involved in the incident have been named. No arrests in the case have been made at this time.
