Separate stabbings — one involving a box-cutter and the other the result of a bar brawl — took place within minutes of each other Monday night.
A 42-year-old black man was cut above the lip with a box-cutter around 6:20 p.m. in the Tenderloin, and less than three minutes later, a 33-year-old white man trying to break up a bar fight in the Mission district was stabbed multiple times, according to San Francisco police.
Neither victim suffered life-threatening injuries, police said.
The Tenderloin stabbing at Golden Gate Avenue and Leavenworth Street was the result of an argument, and the 32-year-old white male suspected of slashing the victim’s face — creating a small, half-inch laceration — is in custody, police said.
The 26-year-old suspect in the Mission stabbing, described only as Hispanic, remains on the loose, having bolted from the bar on the 3200 block of 24th Street after knifing his victim “numerous times,” police said.
These weren’t the only stabbings in The City in recent days.
A 65-year-old man was detained after fatally stabbing a 25-year-old man in Golden Gate Park during the holiday weekend. Also, three white males for no apparent reason beat and knifed a Hispanic man in his 30s while he was riding his bicycle early Sunday morning.
