Good evening OP,
Cacti are very resilient plants. Their entire structure has been highly modified to suit dry arid conditions. A small gash on the side of your plant is not going to hurt your plant any =) But never the less better to be safe than sorry, bringing your cacti indoor is fine for a day or two just remember that eventually your little guy will need to go outside so that it may photosynthesis more effectively. Just keep a close eye on the little guy, in a couple of days the wound should have healed over.
Hope this helps,
