Tension breaks for Golden Gate Park stabbing victim 

A man was cut in the leg after an argument in Golden Gate Park on Saturday, police said.

The 29-year-old victim was in an altercation with two other men near Alvord Lake around 8 p.m. when one of the men pulled out a knife and slashed the victim in the leg, police Officer Albie Esparza said.

The victim was able to kick the knife-wielding thug away, police said. A second suspect attempted to punch the victim several times but did not make contact.

Both suspects fled on foot into the park in an unknown direction, Esparza said. No arrests have been made.

The knife-wielding goon was described by police as a man in his 20s wearing a black, zip-up hoodie with no sleeves, dark pants and black boots. The second suspect was described only as a man with short hair and a mustache.

The victim and suspects are known to each other, Esparza said, although they are not friends. “They know each other by nickname,” he said.

The victim told police there’s been some tension for him in that area of the park for the past several years.

He was treated at San Francisco General Hospital for his injuries, which were not life threatening.
