The attack was random and unprovoked.
News reports say Sir stepped outside a restaurant for a smoke. A black female, angry she had been earlier ejected from the same restaurant, returned with a vengeance. Sir was the first white woman she saw.
The attack occurred in Brooklyn, New York on Feb. 14, 2015. The interview was reported by 7online.com on March 25, 2015.

A woman's face was disfigured in a random attack.
She was slashed by a maniac with a razor blade as she stepped outside for a cigarette.
She told her story exclusively to Eyewitness News.
"It's really not hard not to just curl up in a ball and just cry. But I can't do that," said Heather Sir, the victim.
For Sir the past five weeks have been torture.
"I haven't left my house in over a month," Sir said.
Her disfigurement is so upsetting that she can't bear to show her face in public, or even in private.
"I have problems looking in the mirror still. I don't see me anymore," Sir said.
It was Valentine's Day that her world changed.
Security camera footage from a Bedford-Stuyvesant bar shows her standing outside having a cigarette, when out of nowhere a woman approached her and hit her in the face.
What you can't see in the video are the razor blades tucked between the attacker's fingers.
Sir needed 70 stitches. She allowed Eyewitness News to see pictures that were taken the very next day.
"When I do talk about it makes me feel more vulnerable because it was completely random," Sir said.
Heather used to be a regular pool player at Divine Bar and Grill on Broadway.
On February 14th, the woman got into an argument with a stranger she thought was taking too long in the bathroom.
Management kicked her out and she returned with those blades.
"I'm worried about my staff too. If I'm not here, if I am here, something like this could happen to one of us over something very minor. It's scary," said Eric Goldspiel, the general manager of the bar.
Police, who have yet to catch the attacker, have now released inside video in hopes someone might recognize her.
Her victim says an arrest would at least give her some peace.
"She was out for blood and I was the target. I just happened to be the target that she saw," Sir said.
