If it is just a small hole, just fill the hole with some cement mix and level it off.  What I think you have is a chipped corner, which is somewhat tricky.  Prep is the most important part of the repair.  Chip some of the slope off and try to get a little bit of flat space.  Drill some holes in to the damaged step and either use TapCon screws or put a molly in leaving a half incl or more of the screw top exposed.  You should then use some cement bonder and apply it to the damaged atep.  You should box or frame the damaged step and then fill it it with cement mix, not morter mix.
